Cutting and Pasting

You're able to cut and paste from Word and keep the formatting you've applied in Word. 

Important! Right clicking to paste won't work. Use Ctr C for copying the content and Ctr V for paste. (Command C/V for Mac users)

Formatting Text

  1. Most of your needs will be met using the Format selection in the post's menu bar. 

  2. Headings create larger font text

  3. Inline provides you with bold, italic, subscript etc

  4. Blocks provide paragraph and block quote styles

  5. Alignment provides left, right, centre and justify options

Creating a Block Quote

If I highlight this text with my cursor and select 'Format' and hover over 'Formats', and then 'Blocks' and choose 'blockquote' the text will then look like this within the wiki. Creating a Block Quote
