Paste content by using an import profile

Add and manage content

The Paste Using Import Profile option automatically formats text as you paste it into a topic. The formatting is applied by using the rules defined in your import profile.

Before using the paste option, you'll need to make the import profiles available.

To paste content by using an import profile:

  1. Open the file containing the text that you want to copy. Select the text and copy it to the clipboard.
  2. Open the target topic in the Editor. Click Edit > Clipboard > Paste > Paste Using Import Profile and select the profile.

    Note: If you paste text that Author cannot map to a style in the import profile, the pasted text is formatted by using the default style (normally Body Text).

  3. Save the changes to the topic.
