I have found (quite accidentally) that you can copy and paste things typed in open office (a free program much like word) and for some reason it keeps your format.

Did you save the file in .odt format? Because when I open mine I've saved that way (having pasted from word into open office) they have this odd grey space for places that have spaces and I just copied and pasted right into here. Maybe it doesn't work if you just type them into openoffice, of that I'm not really sure. But if you paste from word into openoffice, then copy paste from there back here it does. God, that hurt my head...

ORRR dammit I think I've solved it. If you have your poem all nice and formatted the way you want it in word, just right click it and chose "open with" and chose openoffice. Then C n P here. Tada. That seems simpler.

I don't know what to tell you...maybe mine is just magic. Maybe it's because I have this site opened in Firefox. I can't really see too many reasons why it would work for me and not you =(

html is a bitch and I haven't had to work with it in 15 years or so...seems like more forum boards (even mine) are going back to it due to the ability of spammers to exploit the "better" or "more detailed" forum formats. Just really sucks when you want to use white space alot. Did you try something saved in word, opened in openoffice, while this site was opened in firefox?

yeah to all the above, im checking the source code to see if it was just that it was done in html.

html isn't allowed cos it's a virus river so i'm the only one who uses it Sad tables don't work either 'cause they're hogs though we used to have them.

i put a how to up in the "how to" forum

not any more, now all you need are word and openword.
not sure they'd transport all the fonts etc but it seems to give a good rendering of the formatting done in word.

Do you mean that if you copy your poem from office and paste into into open word, then space it there, you can copy that open word version and past here and the spacing will be retained?
