Code novice here.
When I paste text into a post, how do I get it to match the text already there?
I’ve used the formatting tools when creating the post and the text looks fine there, but in the blog, the pasted text is a different size and font.
What application are you using to write and format the text before pasting it?
It was copied an pasted from MS Publisher.
Don’t ever copy/paste formatted text in the wysiwyg (visual) editor. It will always screw up your blog. Just plain text.
I fixed it. iridiax, you provided the answer by asking the question.
I pasted in into WordPad first, put some simple formatting to it and edited the post by pasting it in.
Formatting is correct now.
