Do you want to paste the contents of a Word document in one of your Luminis pages?
Are you frustrated that you have to paste as plain text and then reformat everything (bullets, bold text, links, etc) in Luminis?
Give this a try:
Convert Word Documents to Clean HTML
Just paste the contents of your Word document into the this converter and it will spit out clean HTML to then copy and paste in the source view of your Luminis page.
It may work perfect for you, or it may need a few tweaks after it is in Luminis, but either way it should save you a lot of work with reformatting.
Another option is, of course, to convert your Word document to a .pdf file, import the .pdf file and then simply link to it.
Your call on which option you want to use.
Luminis access has been restored. You can begin editing & publishing updates to your websites.
Microsoft Office 2010 includes a new tool for Word, Excel and PowerPoint called the Accessibility Checker, which you can use to check your document for any issues that might make it challenging for a user with a disability. To learn more, see Accessibility Checker.
If you are wanting to link to something that has a very long URL (in the hundreds of characters) this may cause an issue with Luminis. The Luminis linking action tends to break when extremely long URL's are used as links. To get around this Luminis limitation, we recommend the use of a URL shortener.
You can use Google's URL Shortener here: http://goo.gl
Just paste your long URL in the field and click the "Shorten" button. It will generate a short URL for you to use instead of the long one. The URL is displayed to the right of the "Shorten" button. Just copy this and use it as the URL in Luminis.
You can login when you create short URL's and it will save them in your account for you to reference later.
If you have recently downloaded and installed the new version of Java, you may see this Security warning when trying to open the editor:
You will want to click the 'No' button when you see this Security box.
If you have already clicked 'Yes', restart your browser, log back into Luminis and try editing the page again and then click 'No' this time when the Security Warning box comes up.
