Are you tired of copying and pasting content from websites and documents only to have it carry over unwanted formatting? It can be frustrating to spend time trying to adjust the formatting of text to match your website's style. Luckily, there is a solution!
In this blog post, we'll go over a simple tip that will help you copy and paste content from anywhere onto your website without the formatting. Say goodbye to the headache of adjusting formatting and hello to a more efficient workflow.
First, it's important to understand why copying and pasting text from websites and documents can be problematic. When you copy text, you're also copying the formatting of the text, including any HTML code. However, web browsers interpret HTML code differently than applications like Microsoft Word and Excel. This can result in text that doesn't look how you want it to on your website.
So, what's the solution? It's simple! When you're ready to paste the copied content onto your website, use the keyboard shortcut "Command + Shift + Option + V" (on a Mac) or "Control + Shift + Alt + V" (on Windows) instead of the typical "Command + V" or "Control + V" paste command.
This keyboard shortcut will paste the content without the formatting, allowing you to apply your own formatting and styles within your website's page editor. No more struggling to match the formatting of copied content to your website's design!
To demonstrate how this works, let's walk through an example. Imagine you want to copy some text from a Google Doc and paste it onto your website. After selecting the text you want to copy, use the keyboard shortcut "Command + C" (on a Mac) or "Control + C" (on Windows) to copy the content to your clipboard.
Next, log in to your website's page editor and navigate to the page where you want to paste the content. Once you're on the correct page, use the keyboard shortcut "Command + Shift + Option + V" (on a Mac) or "Control + Shift + Alt + V" (on Windows) to paste the content without the formatting.
That's it! You now have your copied content on your website without any unwanted formatting. You can now adjust the formatting to match your website's style using your page editor.
In addition to this helpful tip, you can also make space on your webpage by dragging a divider above content and using the attached smart handles to push content down the page. You can also add a text box to the page and select to edit the contents.
In conclusion, copying and pasting content from websites and documents can be a frustrating experience, but with this simple tip, you can easily paste content onto your website without any unwanted formatting. Using this shortcut will save you time and effort, and make your workflow more efficient. Give it a try and see how much easier your content creation can be!
