Problem with formatting when copy and pasting

    Hi All - 

    I have noticed that if I try to copy content from a word document or external website, the formatting doesn't always translate in Cvent invitations, webpage, ect.. Does anybody have any tips and tricks on how to fix this issue. It is so frustrating.

    Hi Bridget - Cvent and Word don't play nice together. When you copy/paste from Word, there's actually a lot of hidden HTML code that comes over with that text and that's what messes up the formatting. The only solution I've found is to paste the text into Notepad, copy it and then paste it into Cvent.

    Notepad is a text program so all of the formatting is stripped so you are pasting in clean text. I hope this helps.
