don't compose in Word [In reply to] Can't Post

If you have to compose in Word because you're working early, then copy off what you wrote in Word and put it in Notepad before bringing it to the TORn compose window. (or whatever Mac has that is comparable to Notepad).

Alternately, copy it off from word, open a compose window here at TORn and switch to Basic Editor. Paste the text into the Basic Editor window and then switch back to Advanced Editor.

Don't try to format anything in Word. Don't compose in Word with the expectation that you can make bold and bullets and indents and have that transfer here. You want to do all formatting using the TORn commands - either by using the buttons or code.

If you don't strip your text of all formatting code Word has attached to it, you will run into problems and there really isn't any way to solve them. Take it from me. I have tried and learned the hard way.
