How to paste information on your pages


The paste buttons on the top bar are meant to allow you to paste text into the WYSIWYG editor, however, new browser security updates suggest using keyboard shortcuts instead of the editor buttons. 

In this tutorial, you will learn how to copy and paste content using keyboard shortcuts.

 

Step 1: Copy Content


First, highlight the content from your document and copy it to your clipboard by using Command/Control + C.

Step 2: Paste Content


Click to the WYSIWYG editor. Use Command/Control + Shift + V to paste the content without formatting or Command/Control + V to keep basic formatting.
