Follow these steps to copy and paste text and images from other sources into an IT Glue document using the new document editor.
Copying and pasting text
You can copy and paste text using Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V in Windows and Cmd+C/Cmd+V in Mac OS X. You can also use the right-click context menu.
- From the source document or webpage, copy the text to your clipboard.
- Open Notepad and paste your text to strip it of almost all styling information.
- Mac users: paste your text into TextEdit and then click Format > Make Plain Text (Cmd+Shift+T) to strip out most of the styling.
This will insert the contents of the source document (text, tables, etc.) at the cursor in the target document. After that's done, you can reformat the text within the IT Glue editor using headings, bulleted or numbered lists, etc.
Copying and pasting inline images
The process is essentially the same. Simply highlight the image you want to copy and press Cmd/Ctrl+C on your keyboard. Then, paste the image (Cmd/Ctrl+V) into the editor to insert it directly inline when editing.
A few notes:
- Always copy and paste the images individually and separately from the text. Otherwise, while copying text and images from a webpage, you may find you only see image place-holders, not the actual image that appeared in each place-holder on the webpage.
- If you experience other problems copying and pasting images from webpages, try copying from a different browser than the browser IT Glue is open in—or use the right-click context menu to open the image in a new tab and copy from the new tab. Otherwise, you may find your images are inserted as links that don't show up properly in IT Glue.
- Copying text and images together from Word or other desktop apps is not supported. Copying multiple images together from Word or other desktop apps is also not supported.
