Cut and Paste formatting

Postby pghearing on Fri Aug 09, 2019 6:58 am

This is not so much an IMPORTING question, but simply a CUT and PASTE issue. Is there anyway to paste text from work into Mad Cap and have the text keep it's source formatting?

Welcome to the forums! :)

The plain-speaking answer is "probably not as you've described." It'll depend on what you're pasting from, such as Word.

The nuanced answer is that Flare does offer several options for how the copied content will be pasted in, e.g., as paragraphs, as a table.

To learn more, I suggest you refer to these Help topics https://help.madcapsoftware.com/flare2019/Content/Flare/Topics/Setting-Default-Paste-Behavior.htm and https://help.madcapsoftware.com/flare2019/Content/Flare/Topics/Pasting-Text-from-Other-Programs.htm. There are likely to be other topics that also address pasting.
