Tip #51: Copy/Paste content without including MS tags and formatting

You can copy and paste content from Microsoft Word documents into Blackboard without accidentally including Microsoft tags and formatting.

Here’s how to do it:
  1. Open your Microsoft Word source document as well as the editing location in Blackboard where you plan to paste it
  2. Open a new blank Notepad document in Windows
    • Press the Windows Start button and then go to Programs > Accessories > Notepad
  3. In Microsoft Word, highlight the text you want to paste and copy as you normally would
  4. Paste the highlighted text into the blank Notepad document
  5. In Notepad, use Ctrl-A and then Ctrl-C to copy the now formatting-free version of your text
  6. Paste this text into the Blackboard editor as you normally would
