It is IMPORTANT that you DO NOT paste content directly from MS Word into an article. MS Word adds a LOT of formatting that will cause your article to look different from the rest of the content on your site.
Important – This procedure requires that you have JCE Content Editor ( http://www.joomlacontenteditor.net/ ) installed.
- Select and copy the text that you want to paste from MS Word.
Joomla Content Item Screen
- From an open article/content item in Joomal, click Paste as Plain Text icon.
Joomla opens the Paste as Plain Textscreen.
Paste as Plain Text Screen
- Use Ctrl+V to (Command V on Mac) paste the text you copied from MS Word.
- Select Keep linebreaks to preserve the linebreaks you had in MS Word.
- Click Insert.
Joomla pastes the text into your article WITHOUT the MS Word formatting. You can now add formatting as you need it using the Joomla editor.
