    How can I retain MS Word doc formatting in a text field?

    Asked by POHS on July 15, 2015 at 05:32 PM

    When pasting text from a WORD doc into a text field (rich text format), the formatting is stripped out and all the text becomes one block of text. Is there a way to retain the formatting when pasting content into the fields? Thanks.

    I can see your form has several text area fields where user can send formatted text. Unfortunately, the submission output won't show the same format, this is a feature that has been requested before, but not yet released.
