Author Topic: How to cut & paste an article from elsewhere.  (Read 4313 times)
When someone claims to have an Open Mind they are soon shocked, dismayed, and offended that there actually are other views.

IF you attempt to cut and paste from somewhere else straight to this forum you will end up with a total scrambled mess.
Here is how I do it:
1)   I highlight and copy the article I find elsewhere.  Then I paste it into "Notepad." (set at Format: Word Wrap OFF)
   (notepad removes all the color and font coding)
2)   I then manually enter a Space between all the paragraphs.
    If I don't do this then when I past it to this forum all the paragraphs will be merged as one long single paragraph.
3)   When it looks correct in Notepad I then Copy from notepad (Word Wrap OFF)
   (do not copy from notepad with wordwrap ON or else you will get split sentences.)
4)   I then Paste it into this forum, and add my Bold or highlights or color before saving.
BUT FIRST!  I preview my work before saving!  Especially if its large.

I have been on this board for a few years and have been unable to get any of the little emotions thingees.  I could get them but it showed all of the coding as part of the view.

Day before yesterday I couldn't get into my checking web banking, So they suggesting that I switch over to Google Chrome.. for my emails, which I did.

I had been running Internet Explorer 7 for years... Now suddenly I can put all kinds of things in my messages. 

Happy Days
