wordpress vs. microsoft word

It's a battle every time I update my resume or add a statement on my other website: elizabethsymington.com. Wordpress won't let me paste a Word file. I don't want to retype it, because that takes up a lot of time and I'd have to reformat the layout. I even tried the "paste from Word" button. No luck. What I figured out, if is I cut and paste the Word file and email it to myself, I can then cut and paste it into Wordpress.

Is anyone else having this problem? How are you solving the issue?


  1. Hi there,
    I think your problem is that Word adds code that you can't see. Try saving your Word doc as a .txt file. You can do that via the "save as" menu in Word.
