EBS: Text Containing HTML Code That Is Copied From Another Application Into a Mass Notification Template/Message Loses Its Formatting


Text containing HTML code that is copied from another application into a Mass Notification template/message loses its formatting.

Root Cause:

The notification RTF editor is inaccurately translating the rich source text into HTML code.


To copy and paste rich text from another application, such as Microsoft Word (Windows) and Pages (MacOS), the document must be converted to an HTML file before the copy/paste procedure.

  1. Save the rich text content as an HTML (.html or .htm) file.
Saving a Word document as an HTML file
  1. Open the new HTML file in a plain text editor, such as Notepad++ (Windows) or TextEdit (MacOS).
Opening with Notepad++
  1. Copy the HTML code from the plain text editor.
