-- Can't paste text into text boxes on Blackboard

Using copy-and-paste to get text from Microsoft Word, the Internet, or other programs into Blackboard text boxes can cause several problems due to the fact that a lot of other information, such as formatting commands, is being copied and pasted along with the text. 
If possible, it's best to type directly into a Blackboard text box.  If you wish to copy and paste, you have a couple of choices that will help reduce the amount of information copied:

1. Paste first to a text Editor like Wordpad, Notepad, or TextEdit, then copy and paste that to Blackboard since these programs do not carry over any formatting. 

2. Using the Blackboard Word Mash-Up tool to paste text from a Word document.
