The steps below are the most effective way to paste text from external documents into your Webstarts website…
Step 1: Open the document or web page you are copying the text from.
Step 2: Also log into and open your Webstarts editor to the page you are pasting to.
Step 3: In the document, highlight the text you wish to copy and then type Ctrl-C or right-click-copy to copy the contents to your clipboard.
Step 4: Once you have coppied the content, create a new text box on your webstarts web page using the Insert Textbox icon on the toolbar.
Step 5: Double click and highlight the text that reads [ Your Text Here ] and then paste the contents of the document into your text box using either the Paste icon: , Ctrl-V or right-click-paste.
That’s all there is to it. You should now see that the text from your document is now in your Webstarts web page.
Note: Some documents may cause HTML code errors when pasting directly into your Webstarts web page. In that case, it is a good practice to first paste the document content into a simple text editor such as Notepad and then copy and paste from Notepad into your text box. What this does is it effectively strips any additional HTML code from your page that could lead to errors on your Webstarts website.
