When you cut and paste content into the input boxes whilst creating frameworks (or any other input boxes for that matter), in some instances you may be pasting more than you think. For example, cutting and pasting directly from MS Word documents and PDF documents will add more than the text, and this includes HTML tags that can't immediately been seen, but will result in formatting issues down the track.
Here is an example of text pasted directly from a MS Word document.
It looks ok on the surface, but if you click the 'HTML' button on the editor ribbon above the text box, what has actually been added to text input box is revealed.
It is important that the content you add is in 'plain text' so that none of the additional hidden tags are added unintentionally. This can be achieved by:
- Using a chrome or firefox based browser, copying the content from the source document, and right clicking the input text box and selecting 'paste as plain text'.
- Copy the content from the source document to MS Notepad first (this will remove the html tags) and then paste as normal into the text input box.
