DRAFT – SUBJECT TO SUBSTANTIAL REVISION
The objective for this tutorial is to show how to copy a Word document into Windows Live Writer (WLW) for uploading to the Users’ Knowledge Base (UKB).
Copying Word documents into WLW provides Authors with an additional option, and a user friendly way, for contributing to the UKB. It is recommended for those who have an archive of articles already written in Word or who prefer the familiarity of Word. It is also suitable for those who want to use the superior editing features that Word offers over Blog Editors. It is also useful for those who work collaboratively and want to use features like comments and revision tracking. Another benefit is that it provides a stable, and familiar local back-up. It is a method that does not have a long learning curve.
It is recommended that the Word document to be copied has been written according to the guidelines at: Quick Posting Example – Word Attachment . The document should consist only of text, with basic formatting, images, tables, hyperlinks and AFL formulas. Tables need to have been converted to an image.
Copy and paste the document into WLW
1) Open a New post in WLW.
2) Enter a Title for the post.
3) Open the Word document that is to be copied.
AFL formulas – add markers (plain text in AB pref)
