Formatting issues in sharepoint 2013 when copy/paste from word document RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    When we copy/paste content(rich text, tables, styles) from a word document to SharePoint site whole formatting is messed up.

    is this the limitation of SharePoint 2013?

    Thanks, 
    Shiva.

  • Hi Shiva,

    Some styles for font of rich text aren't be kept when I copy the content from Word 2013 and paste into a wiki page from SharePoint 2010/2013(even SharePoint 2007 like this post) site as same as yours, it looks like a limitation.

    As a workaround, we can publish the Word content as a Blog article in SharePoint site, then copy the content from the blog page to the needed SharePoint page, it will keep the rich text content format, you can have a try.
