If you have a relatively small amount of text to enter into a Text Edit Box, then you may want to just type it directly into the box. However, if you have a large amount of text, you may want to type the text into a word processing application (such as Microsoft Word), then copy the text from there and paste it into the Text Edit Box. This can allow you to check spelling, etc. before the text is added to a web page.

Note: You lose all formatting of text when it is copied from a word processing application to the CC Text Edit Box (but not necessarily the WYSIWYG Text Edit Box). Therefore, format the text once it is in the CC Text Box, not in the word processing application!

To copy and paste text:

  1. While using your Community Center application, open your word processing file.
  2. Highlight the text in the word processor, and then press Ctrl-C (or right-click and select Copy) to copy it.
  3. Change to your browser window and click in the Text Edit Box. Press Ctrl-V (or right-click the Text Edit Box and select Paste) to paste the text.
