Copy and paste is easy with Laulima’s new text editor

Fortunately, with Laulima’s recent upgrade, the text editor got updated too. Now you can copy/paste from Word into Laulima’s text editor box without garbled text in the source code that shows when you post. Yay!

Unfortunately, however, copy/paste from Google Documents into Laulima’s text editor box now has weird formatting, although not the exact problem that Word had. In most cases the extraneous formatting code is in the source code view and not when you actually post. Nonetheless, to remove the unnecessary code from copying/pasting from a Google Document into Laulima’s text editor box:

  1. Copy the text from your Google Document.
  2. Paste your copied text in Laulima’s text editor (in whichever tool you’re using).
  3. Highlight all the text by click-and-dragging, Ctrl A, or Cmd A to select-all, and click on the “Remove Format” eraser button in the toolbar. It will remove the text formatting, but yet, retain your hyperlinks. (Note that this “Remove Format” feature means it will remove all text formatting such as bold, italics, and colored text.)
