I copied/pasted from MS Word and my work doesn't look right (loss of formatting)

You may see issues when you copy and paste text from a Word document directly into the editor. To avoid the formatting issues, you can remove the formatting and reformat it with the functions on the toolbar of the editor.

To remove the word formatting after you paste the text in the editor, select all the text and select the Remove Formatting icon  Only use this option if you understand that all formatting will be removed. All bullets, numbered lists, indentations, line spacing, centered text, and font formatting and sizing will be removed.
