The Tithe.ly Sites text editor comes with three pre-formatted text sizes: Main headline, sub-headline, and standard paragraph.

However, sometimes you'll notice that text appears in a very different size or font than it normally does. A very common cause of this is when people paste content in from Microsoft Word. There will often be formatting hidden within the text, implementing different fonts, spacing and text sizes.

Sometimes content that has been cut and pasted into the site will keep the source formatting which in turn results in some content looking different than others. Below are instructions on how to avoid this from happening by pasting content in plain text for both PC and Mac users. 

Paste as Plain Text

If you have copied text from somewhere else and it is not showing up properly on your site, there may be some hidden formatting that is also being brought in depending on where you copied the text from. To clear the unwanted formatting, click on the "Paste as text" button found in the text editor, paste your text and click save. You can then go back to edit the formatting the way you want. 

If your text is still not displaying properly, see below for more ways to fix unwanted formatting from copying and pasting text.
