Pasting from WORD

John C I'm New Here Jun 23, 2022

I have searched around and didn't see any recent or clear info on this:


Is there a way to paste stories from Word and keeping the formatting?  None of the paste options seem to work effectively.  Sometimes I get two bullets next to each other and the indenting never comes over to JIRA.  Especially frustrating when you have a 4 page story to re-format again after pasting into JIRA. 


Steps to recreate:

1. Write my story in word.

2. Copy and paste from word to jira.


Thanks in advance!

Not really John. The formatting including fonts and such are not necessarily going to be the same between confluence and Word. Is there a reason why you're constructing a document in word first? Maybe these are pre-existing documents that you want to move over to Confluence?
