How can I paste from Word in the system's editor?
Both editors used in Etudes include a "Paste from Word" function
that you can easily identify on the editor's toolbar with the "W" on
the icon. That's what you want to use.
Please read below for tips on how to proceed!
|If you decide to create your text in MS Word and copy/paste it into the editor box, here are a few tips:|
|1) Don't bother formatting
the text a lot in Word. It will just get stripped out when pasting
into the editor box.
2) Create your work in MS Word and save. Then copy the text you want to submit.
|3) Return to your assignment or test. Don't
just paste your copy here into the text box. Instead, click on
the "W" clipboard icon on the top row of the toolbars above the box.
4) Use the keyboard command (Control+V on PC or Command+V on Mac) to paste the text into the little white box in this separate dialog box. There is no need to click the Clean Up Box. After pasting, just click the OK button at the bottom of the box.
5) Your text will now be pasted into the large white box. All the "ugly" Word code has been stripped. (Plus most of any fancy formatting that you went ahead and did, regardless of what I said above.)
6) If you want to format your text, go ahead and use the tools in the toolbar to do so now.
If you use a different word processing program, or if you're having trouble using the "W" clipboard, you can use the "T" clipboard instead. Copy the text created in whatever format it is in. Upon returning to your assignment page, click on the "T" clipboard. You'll see a Paste from Text box, very similar to the Word example above. Go ahead and paste your text there and click OK. (Remember to paste using keyboard command.)
If you still have a problem with that, try using the Paste from Clipboard icon (located to the left of the "T" clipboard in screenshot above). Whatever text is on the clipboard will go into the large white box. This is a "last resort" attempt that is rarely, if ever, needed.
