How do I effectively copy/paste into the Spinternet editor?

As we've mentioned before, not all Spinternet installs are created equal. When relying on copy/paste functionality, the buttons you see in your version of Spinternet might differ from the explanations below. 

Unsure which button to use? Can't remember what does what? Let's recap...

Paste as Plain Text

Just like it sounds, Paste as Plain Text will only paste text...as text. No styling. No links. No "extra stuff". When in doubt, this is your best option. Just copy the text, paste it in to the editor, and style it yourself as necessary using the Spinternet tools.

Paste

Paste gets a little more complicated and will bring with it any styling that has already been applied from the source it was copied from. What you copy is what you get so to speak...so if you copy a headline that is blue, bold, and links to an article online, when you paste it into Spinternet it will be blue, bold, and contain the link.

Paste from Word

Similar to the above, Paste from Word brings along any styling when pasting content into Spinternet. The one major difference is, Paste from Word should only be used when copying from Microsoft Word.
