Pasting from Word

I discovered that if I write a post in Word and paste it into a comment box, it destroys the paragraphs and sentences by splitting them onto various lines as shown in the image. I took this block of text from the Tesla Wiki, pasted it into word, then copied and pasted it into a comment box. It looks fine until you actually click the "make comment" button.

Word formatting on comments

I have been away from Instructables for some time, and I came back, not much has changed after the pro feature was implanted. Which is good. ^^ However, I have a little problem with word formatting, when I tried using some symbols to change the way the words look, they don't work. Is this due to the pro feature? Or am I using the wrong symbles and my memory needs a little refreshing? Thanks! I just chose this picture randomly, I don't know what else to use. :P

"Import from Word"

I've been trying to post my most recent instructable and all has gone smoothly except for the fact that the "paste from word" option does not work. I am using word 2010 on a windows 7 computer with chrome, firefox, and IE 9. All three browsers will only import the plain text format of word documents that I type up rather than the fully formatted versions. It's not that I cant format everything I need via the main text input screen, its just that frankly the scrony forum post-type entry field sucks for writing well organized instructables. Please fix this! ~Love poent

The word 'Instructable' is a typo

So if you've ever typed the word 'Instructable' into a field of text on this site, you know it has that dotted red line under it that indicates it's a typo. It's a small thing, yes, but it would add a modicum of dignity to the word if it was included into the spellcheck's dictionary. Just my two pixels - feel free to call me out for being nit-picky :)

Provisional copyright wording?

I received an instructables message from someone wanting to use some of my pictures for articles in an Italian online newspaper. I think I was not the only person who has gotten this request.  This is a quote from the actual request-- "is it possible to take your images to publish for free, obviously citing the copyright and linking the website?" Now, my inclination is to say yes BUT.  I want to make certain that they are not making money on my work and just getting it from me free. I also want to make certain that the pictures remain under my control, that I am not giving up my work but rather giving permission for it to be published elsewhere while still retaining all copyrights to it. What would be a good wording for accomplishing this? Anyone else who has received this request might want to consider provisional permission also.  Ownership of your work is something you should keep the rights to.

Negative Google

There are ways and means of putting websites high on the results of a google search.Are there ways of dropping it down the list of a particular search, though?

No copy and paste either, or a download (those take about a minute each for a document 567 pages long)if you want to know how to do it yourself, first of all, dont bother with this unless you have word 2007, as it does not work in past versions of office.

Holy moley! Pneumatic mouth cannon!

I don't know how much more random fun you can find. I discovered this while at a buffet with my girlfriend and her brother on his birthday. Anyway, I was finished after two plates and a salad, and was balling the straw wrapper between my fingers. A tiny piece, probably a half-inch by a half-inch, ripped off in my hands. Staring at this little fragment, I put down the rest of the wrapper. I balled up the fragment, and put it between my fingers in such a manner that when I blew, it sent the fragment flying at great velocity. Thank God no one noticed or was killed. I have yet to chronograph this little amazing scientific breakthrough, but I estimate about 25 fps. Cool, huh? Anyway, rip off a tiny corner of a napkin or straw wrapper. Ball it up. Touch your thumb and index fingers on both hands together like you're rubbing something off of them. Put the tips of them together, and there should be a little diamond-ish hole between the four fingers. That's where the ball of paper goes. Put the ball in that hole, and pinch gently. Put your lips up to the hole, and blow. If nothing comes out, good! Blow to ready this little weapon, and release the pinch of your fingers to fire. Awesome, huh?

Symbols in Word 2003 and up? Answered

People, please tell me how to do it..., otherwise I will delete it (again...). The 2003 Office Suite, to be replaced by the decade old ' Office' version??? Please don't tell me the buggy old 'open office' is better... Just put it on your USB stick...

This is sooo random, I thought I had to share it.I wanted to see if a picture is really worth1,000 words worth of data.the average word is 5 letters and a space (or puntuation), so six bytes.1,000 words would be 6000 bytes, or 5.859375 KB (1KB = 1,024 bytes!!!)A 500x375 px JEPG image is about 55 KB, so it is worth 9486 words (and a 3 letter word + a space).A thumbnail, however, is only 1.91 KB, so only 326 words...It would seem, however, that 326 words would convey more than the thumbnail, whereas the 9486 words would convey more than the mid-range image.Just some random geekiness :-D

Annoyingly disjointed words in messaging.

To the staff writing software for the site's message program, There seems to be a character limit per line when viewing messages. The sentences display from one side of the text field to the other then simply stop and continue on the next line. While that is a good thing, preventing scrolling across the screen, it also tends to cut words so that the message can be quite taxing to read. I'm viewing this in firefox on a windows 7 os.

The Random Paragraph Word Game

We will see how this works out, I do this with my friends and it gets funny. Instructions: I will start with one word. If we were doing this in person it would be on a piece of paper. That paper is passed to the person next to him. That person writes a word, any word, and passes the paper on. This is repeated, and will form into: A. a funny paragraph B a totally random paragraph that makes no sense C a paragraph that tells an epic story that is the next "Hamlet" and makes perfect sense (That's no fun though) You can choose to end a sentence and start a totally new one anywhere Keep it appropriate. Example Cheese coated birds dance on top of my (*gasp*will it be appropriate?) head. Your pet cookie ate my cat. Here is the word: Why Oh, I forgot to say, add everything prier to your word into your comment (to avoid confusion and if you do that you can avoid a ton of replies to you that you will regret by just hitting post comment and not reply).
