How can you copy and paste from MS word and not get all the formatting jibberish with the post?

    Will ride along on this one as well-a few times, after posting I can get the edit function to work and place the cursor at the beginning of the formatting stuff, hit "delete" and it disappears-but that's not 100%.  And I'm no techno junkie:)

    Save it as a text file (.txt) and copy/paste from that ?

    When I do, I post then go back and edit post and remove the "jibberish". Worked so far.
    I will also try the notepad idea in the future.

    Purchased these during the hamburger fest at CM  Better than Good Bacon Jam and BBQ sauce


    ok saving as text file got rid of the gibberish, but still had to edit twice to get the spacing correct.  Thanks for the help

    I have used "paste as text" option and it works. (see the icon with a capital T to the left of printer icon)
