“Copy and Paste from Word” Feature is Now Available

Date posted: 2/6/2012

The "Paste from Word" feature has recently been added to Blackboard and allows users to seamlessly copy and paste written content from Word into Blackboard.  This feature will maintain all of Word’s formatting and transfer the formatting into Blackboard.

Prior to adding the “Paste from Word” feature, users would have to paste formatted text into Notepad or another plain-text editor in order to remove the hidden HTML code.  Not doing so would result in a range of issues, most notably a combination of strangely formatted text and symbols. This new feature is available anywhere in Blackboard where the text editor is found by clicking the Mashup icon.
