[resolved] Pasting from Microsoft Word breaks on save (6 posts)

    When I copy some text and a table from Microsoft Word, it looks fine in the visual editor.

    When I click save and look at it in the editor again or on the actual site, its usually missing data.

    What can be done to fix this bug?

    Save the word file as html and paste your selection's html into the 'code' tab. You'll still have to do some editing because Word's HTML conversion is somewhat inconsistent in my experience.

    Understand there is a significant difference between html editing which is what writing in WordPress is and writing in a word processor environment.

    Thanks for your reply, but I actually just found something really quite impressive...

    There's a function called "Paste from word".

    'paste from word' won't convert your Word tables but it is handy to get the text over.

    Yes it does, just not very well.
