Pasting Text into the Bb WYSIWYG Text Box Editor
To avoid issues with Copy- or Cut-and-Paste from MS Word into the Bb WYSIWYG text box, use Notepad (Windows) or a Mac plain text editor (e.g., free: Text Wrangler from barebones.com; Plain Text Editor from brothersoft.com or versiontracker.com; or any other plain text editor).
Copy/paste the MS Word text into the plain text editor, then copy that cleaned plain text and paste it into the Bb Text box.
File Names and Extensions
To prevent conflicts and corrupted files, use only alpha-numeric characters and the underscore (_) for file names.
Do NOT use spaces or special characters, only letters, numerals, and the underscore.
Major Caution: Do NOT put a space at the beginning of a file name.
Use 32 or fewer characters in your file name.
Close the document and quit the application before uploading the file to Bb.
For documents to be opened on another computer, the file extension (such as .doc, .docx, .html, .htm, .pdf), to designate the file type is added when you save your document. Your computer should add that extension and the period that separates if from the document name. You will see that extension in the file link on Bb.
Do not change or remove the extension or the period.
