How to Clear Formatting with One Click
Last Update: Jul 14, 2017
Some WA members are using MS Words for writing their posts. The advantage of Words lies in its powerful grammar check and its instant edition of synonyms. The disadvantage of Words is that the inserted text gets automatically formatted with some coding, which is ill supported by most web design and development applications. When you copy a text written with Words and paste it into a blog post editor it very well can happen, that once published your post can’t be read properly, which makes it necessary for you to re-edit it.
Now, to avoid this hassle, there is a very easy solution provided by Words itself. When going to the home ribbon you will see an icon with the picture of the “A” character being erased (see below).
This button is called: “Clear All Formatting”. Before using this button, you must select the text from which you want to remove the formatting. (see below)
Once selected, click on the “Clear All Formatting” button. If you were using a different font than the default one, your text will immediately change to the default font. (see below)
Now you can insert your text into your blog post without risking any display problems.
I hope this short introduction of one of Words many features will help simplify your post creation.
