The WYSIWYG Editor

In this tutorial, we are going to be looking at the Style drop-down menu, which is located in the WYSIWYG editor panel.

Copying and Pasting Text - Paste from Word

  1. In your word document, select the text and copy it to the clipboard.
  2. Use the Paste from Word icon (see above - looks like a little clipboard with a 'W' in the bottom right-hand corner)

(Note: Sometimes content pasted from Microsoft Word will insert extra code that will make it harder for you to edit the text of your blog post later on. This is why it is important to use the Paste from Word button at the start - it strips out the unnecessary code for you.)

Paste Your Text from Word

A new Pop-up window will appear labelled Paste from Word.

  1. Click in the text box and then use CTRL + V (or CMD + V on a mac) to paste the text you have copied from Word into the window.
  2. Click on the grey Paste button to insert the cleaned up text into your blog post.

Open the Style drop-down menu
