When I create a new lesson, I have to mess around toggling the plain-text button several times before I can paste text. Usually the text comes in unformatted, I assume what your program thinks is "plain text", which is not what I want. I should be able to copy paste without thinking about it, but about a month ago you guys changed something. Please change it back.
@Wulfgar - The lesson page doesn't support custom formatting such as bold, italics, etc. and the new Import Lesson page defaults to stripping this additional formatting code from the text that you paste in. Would you give me an example of the kind of text you are trying to import?
I'm not talking about those things. I'm talking about having separate paragraphs, indentation and such. Use any text with indentation, and it takes several toggles to get it to paste at all, and normally comes in as one solid block of text. The difficulty of pasting text started about a month ago.
@Wulfgar - Yes, I just wonder if you would be able to send me some text that you're trying to import. I'm curious to see the formatting in the text you are importing to see if it's related to the specific text or an issue with our text field. A direct link to the text would be great if possible!
Try to paste any chapter. It pastes with no problem in the description, but with great difficulty in the text box. It's too bad this was changed.
Have you tried CTRL V?
It works well for me.
Or the import bookmarklet; it also imports like the original.
@Wulfgar - Seems to work fine for me as well. In Safari, you can go to "Edit --> Paste and Match Style" when pasting the text in. That should hopefully work properly if it is still giving you issues.
@mfr - Yes I've tried CTRL V, and right click paste.
@alex - that works, thanks. I want you guys to know that I don't have to do this for the other boxes (title, description, etc) if I want to paste into them. Did you recently add the little undo/redo/paste as text buttons in the Text box? Why does this box have to be different from the others?
@Wulfgar - The text field was recently updated to automatically remove additional HTML formatting from text when pasting it in. It seems to still be causing some issues in Safari when using Ctrl+V, and I've passed this along to our development team.
