Improve copy and pasting rich text from word processors (Microsoft Word, Google Docs)

My content workflow involves staging and formatting text in a word processing tool, like Word or Docs -- then copying the formatted text into a rich text field.

Unfortunately sometimes pasting certain elements go haywire, forcing me to spend time RE-formatting my text in Webflow.

Wish Webflow handled my copy-pasting workflow smoother.


We want to hear -- what's breaking for everyone? Please also share which tool you are copying from, and how important this is to your workflow.

    When copying from Word into a rich text box (Designer or Editor), I lose spaces so wordsappeaer togetherlike this. As a workaround I found that if I copy the text into Notes (on mac) first, and then copy into the Webflow, I don't have that issue. Pretty silly that that's now part of my workflow!
