Copying from Word and pasting in Blogger

Lately I've had difficulties with copying texts that I've written in Word and pasting them into Blogger. I'm no expert, but if you look at the "Edit Html" tab, there is all this extra code that comes with the text when you paste it. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. I don't know why.

In the meantime, I found a workaround. If you paste the document into Notepad first and then copy from there to Blogger, you seem to get rid of the code problem when pasting from Word.

Blogger in general is giving me a lot of problems today, particularly with Autosave. I'm not sure what is going on.


  1. My "blogger" issue is that you have so little control over the say NOTHING about placing photos!

    I do the same thing each time - one day I CANNOT get spaces between paragraphs, the next time there are enormous gaps. I could understand it not being what I want! But I'd imagine that it would not be what I want in a consistent way!

  2. Да, я таким способом тоже пользуюсь. В блокноте уничтожается вордовское форматирование. Правда, в самом блоггере тоже есть кнопка для очистки форматирования. Вставляешь текст из Word, нажимаешь на кнопку, и формат очищается. Но в этом случае появляются разрывы между абзацами...

  3. You can add spaces by going into the HTML and typing
    . I have the same problem with no spaces alternating with gaps. If it shows up in the preview you can fix it, but sometimes it shows up after you publish, and that's kind of annoying.

  4. Oops, I typed it as code. Let's try this again. To make a break, you type "br" in between <>.

  5. Me too It;s making me crazy. i;ll try your work around thanks
