Word and Blogger

A couple of you have mentioned having problems copying and pasting from Word into Blogger. I can't replicate the problem on my end but here's a solution you might try:

- Type text into Notepad
- Notepad is typically located in the Accessories folder (Start - All Programs - Accessories - Notepad)
- SAVE your Notepad document (yourdocument.txt)
- Highlight text and right click and select "Copy"
- Go to
- Log in
- Click on "New Post"
- Right click and select "Paste"
- Then click on "Publish"

If this does not work you can always e-mail me your Notepad document as an attachment. It will be a text file (.txt).

We'll look at this in class on Tuesday for anyone who is having problems.
