Spacing issues when copying/pasting with special characters

When we are copying and pasting text from Word into Bloom, where there are special characters Bloom is putting spaces everywhere. When you try to delete the spaces, it doesn’t usually save the changes. We’ve found a work-around of holding down a letter on your keyboard so that a choice of special characters comes up at the bottom of the screen. Usually when you re-write a word using this method the changes are saved, but it’s very time consuming.

Another work-around when pasting text from Word is to paste into Notepad first, then copy the text from Notepad and paste it into Bloom. Unfortunately, this may not work once a text box in Bloom already has text in it which was copied and pasted from Word directly, so you may need a new page or new text box.

Thank you! That is very helpful!
