How to Avoid Copy / Paste Issues

Hidden code causes formatting & line spacing issues

When you copy from another program like Microsoft Word and paste it into your FASO Control Panel, it includes hidden HTML code likely to give you grief when trying to format.

The simplest way to avoid this is right from your FASO Control Panel text box:

  • Click the T icon (in row above text box; hover says Paste as Plain Text)

A box will pop in up above to explain:

  • Put your cursor in the text box and paste
  • Now use the icons above to format, or click for Full Screen Mode (button lower left of text box) for a screen with more formatting options
  • Remember always to Save Changes!

Apps to Strip Code Before you Paste

Another option is to use an application that removes all the formatting first. 

If you already created the text in Word, you can use Notepad (PC) or TextEdit (Mac). Then copy and paste from there.

(Notepad & TextEdit are free apps that come with your device.)

Then re-apply formatting using the text editing icons at the top of editing screen.
