I have text I wish to post on my blog. The Title works.
I am unable to post from word. When I copy, it will not paste.

I can copy and past the same message on my desktop.

    Try saving to a text file, then copy and paste that into the Kos editor. That's what I do when I'm trying to format puzzles. The Kos editor can't handle all the cool stuff you can do in Word.

    Hello, and thanks for asking.

    Yes, pucklady has a good suggestion. Most of the time, copying and pasting from a Word document into the draft window does work. But on occasion there is some code used for formatting in the original source that confounds our editor.

    If that doesn't work, then please return with a few more details. It would be good to know the browser and operating system you're using, and whether you've encountered any problem like this previously. You also might try creating your post while you are viewing the site in an incognito or private window. If you've added any extensions that could possibly conflict with our normal site function, using a private window will temporarily disable them and thus allow you to determine if there is an additional conflict, above and beyond what might be carried along invisibly from the source document.

    We appreciate your support of the mission of the site.
