Why is formatting lost after pasting from Google Docs/Word?

Modified on Thu, 28 Dec 2023 at 01:14 PM

At Wittypen, we have set up our own Document editor to ensure that Writers can comfortably write on platform itself making it convenient for them to do their job efficiently. There are advance rich text formatting options, editor offers live word count and drafts are automatically saved to make their job easy. However, each writer has their own preferred set of document editors (e.g. MS Word, Google Docs, and other 3rd party document editor). Most writers prefer completing their work and then pasting the content on the platform. 


Most of the 3rd party document editing tools keep updating their text engines thus, making it difficult to keep up with the formatting and different kind of rich text which is hard to work with. Also, this leads to big errors when one tries to copy and paste their content. For example, when a writer paste their content from Google docs containing a list, the order of the list may get jumbled up or the list may get lost in the process. 


To ensure that no data is lost while trying to paste content from any other editor, our Document editor converts the text any rich text into plain text and thus, when any content is pasted onto the editor formatting gets done properly and no changes are made in the original format of the content. 

I hope this clarifies any concerns related to content formatting while you past your content on the document editor!
