Students Faq - general technical problems

How should I Copy / paste text from Ms Word?

Most of the time when you will copy / paste some text from a MS Word document to Moodle it will be done without any problems (label or web page as a teacher; assignment, forum post as a student).

But it is recommended to be cautious as sometimes a few formatting problems can happen as these documents have "hidden" formatting (and you copy these options as well without knowing it). 

What can you do when you encounter problems?

Paste the text into Wordpad or Notepad first (to make it "clean"), or use the "Paste from Word" function in the Word processor of Moodle.


As you click on the icon, a pop-up window will open up. Just paste the text into the left box (CTRL+V), check the preview and click on the "Complete Paste" button.


Note: Some browsers does not allow you to use the "Paste" command with your mouse. Use the CTRL+V key combination instead.
