TIP: COPY AND PASTE AS PLAIN TEXT
How many times have you copied something from a website or elsewhere and when you paste it in, the font is completely different? There is a quick fix for that!
What’s happening is when you copy something (CMD+C on Mac; CTRL+C on PC), not only does it copy the text, it also copies the HTML tags and styling code. This is called Rich Text Format (or RTF).
To paste in as plain text format which is JUST the text and no styling (or TXT), press CMD+SHIFT+V on a Mac or CTRL+SHIFT+V on a PC.
Hope that helps!
