    Copy/paste text from Word doc or PDF to Robohelp

    SISk12
      Bolded words, indentions, paragraphs, line spacing, font, and text size amongst other things are lost when I do a simple copy/paste... Any way to relieve this?

      Thanks

          Hi
          I'd like to answer this in a slightly different way..

          It's a good idea to format anything you paste into RH in RH using paragraph styles etc. Hardcoded formatting won't be under stylesheet control which is very bad news.

          In fact I generally paste stuff from a word doc into notepad first to remove any formatting soI have "clean" text to begin with.

          That way you ensure consistency when styles are updated etc as well maintaining consistency with what's already there.
