The activity editor formatting isn't working
Is the Activity editor not working correctly? You try to change the formatting, but nothing works?
If you are entering activity/lesson material into the editor by copying and pasting, the issue may be that extra formatting from the previous document is being accidentally pasted into the Activity editor without your knowledge! Read on ....
When you copy/paste text from a web page or document created with another word processing system, hidden formatting (in HTML and/or XML) from the previous location is included in what is pasted into the Ruzuku activity editor. This is probably what's causing the problem you're experiencing, as all of that hidden formatting is extra characters in the system. These extra formatting commands also prevent you from additional editing inside the activity editor.
If you're using MS Word to format your activity text, a simple way to strip off the extra formatting is to use an online tool like Word 2 Clean. Here's how:
- Paste your document into the space provided, check all the options for formatting available, and then click the "convert to clean html" button.
- The text will be converted within seconds. Then, click the Copy HTML to clipboard link, follow the instructions to press CTRL-C to copy it, and paste it into the Ruzuku editor in the Code View (click the icon shown below, in the activity editor).After pasting, click the purple Save button, and click the Code View icon again to go back to normal editing view.
- After pasting, click the purple Save button, and click the Code View icon again to go back to normal editing view.
