Hi darwins836969,

Welcome to the Community!

When copying and pasting from word, it should paste into the text box element. Have you tried right clicking on the highlighted text in word and choosing copy...then right clicking on the text box within the editing software and choosing paste? If that doesn't work, please try copying your content first to a notepad file and then copy it from there into your website. The text box element uses simple text which is what notepad uses.

Thanks,

Chris

Unfortunately, our software doesn't recognize charts. If you need charts on your website, you'll need to create them and save them as an image.

Hi Malana,

Sorry for the delay - You can copy and paste the following 3 ways after highlighting the text:

ctrl+C

click Edit > Copy

Right click > Copy

Please give those methods a try and let me know if you're still having trouble.

Thanks!

I am trying to build my new website, and this feature is a bit critical to my progress. Hoping for an answer soon.

Hi Susanne/SMP,

Sorry for the delay - Are you unable to copy/paste text or are you trying to copy a chart or another graphic from Word?

I am attempting to copy/paste a chart created in MS PAINT to my web site, which your web information states it has to be in jpeg, gif, png, jpg and it is in XML at the present moment.

Hi James3851,

You cannot copy/paste an image into Sitebuilder Plus, you'll need to add it as an image by clicking +insert > image

Hope this helps, thanks!
