Formatting an imported document

    Question

  • I'm trying to find a solution for this problem.  Live Writer is my latest try:

    I have a meal menus website using Wordpress software.  I have recipe planning software that will only output in a format that's hard to work with.  By changing it to HTML in Word, it strips the formatting out so I can work with it.

    So I'm trying to put it in Live Writer.  I have a section that needs to be a table, and another that needs to be displaying in two columns (NOT my site's columns; two columns in the main part of the layout).

    Can I highlight the text I need inserted into columns, and define the table?  Or do I have to manually transfer each bit of info into the cells?  I'm trying to do this with as few clicks as possible.  The software was sold to me saying it could easily post to websites, but they only meant *their* website.  So I have to work around it and it's taking a lot of extra time.

  • If you do Control+Shift+V when you paste, it will bring up a special dialog which will help you control the formatting as it is pasted into Writer.  This might help you, otherwise, you will have to do it by hand or create a plugin.
