Super Quick Solution for Formatting Issues

Do you type your blog, website or newsletter copy onto a Word doc and then paste it?

If so, you may  have experienced some funky formatting issues. That’s because Word has some hidden coding that many programs don’t like. It’s gotten better over the years, but it can still be an issue.

The quick and easy solve is to use a Text Editor instead of Word. Websites, etc are in love with text editor documents. Or, copy and paste your Word content into your Text Editor. Then, copy and paste that into your website. I do this all of the time and it prevents a lot of hair-pulling incidents.

The other thing is to use the little “Paste as Text” icon in WordPress or your other program; the little paste icon with a T on it.
