A little questionI use Microsoft Word XP thingy... oki... so why won't it let me just upload it? everytime i try, it gives me an error message so yeah... just wondering
|Ithilwen||I hate Windows XP...|
Let me see. Ah. I get it. Save your word file (.doc) as a text file (.txt) or webpage (.html) before you try to upload it.
|sparky_lurkdragon||Or, alternately, insert HTML tags in the appropriate places (italics, etc.) and copy/paste into the text field.|
|Forge||Oh, God. Try Ith's method. Manually inserting tags is an absolute pain in the derriere.|
|sparky_lurkdragon||Maybe I'm just used to it because I also post to LiveJournal.|
|Ithilwen||Actually, Forge, I do type in my own tags. I have to anyway to post chapters on my bulletin board, so I just CTRL-F and switch [ to < and copypaste them here.|
And if possible, please don't use the expressions "manually insert" and "derriere" in the same sentence.
|Forge||Ficwad has made manually inserting tags into my stories obsolete. I just save a Word as an HTML, upload it to Ficwad, copy/paste to Word again, and change to  or whatnot. Ah, such a beautiful thing.|
Manually inserting HTML tags is no longer a pain in the buttocks.
|Ithilwen||Your italics formatting is still there, Forge, but your paragraphs on S^3 run together with no tabs.|
|Forge||That's a problem I need to fix. Is there a setting to double-space between paragraphs?|
|Ithilwen||In my experience, there is not. You must either save in a format that won't eat your tabs or manually add an extra paragraph break. Like I said, I have to do the latter anyway to post on other websites, so it's no big deal for me.|
