Copy and Paste of Bulleted Lists from Word Note Working

Mitch Jun 18, 2017 11:08AM PDT

I'm transferring a bunch of notes I use for work from separate Microsoft Word Documents into Outline. I am trying to Copy and Paste Bulleted lists and unfortunately the formatting will not copy into outline correctly. The bullets all lose their indents and left justify and it seems to paste symbols as the bullets and not actually keep "bullet formatting." Any tips or workarounds you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Mitch,

Thanks for reaching out!

I think it will be better to import your notes from Word to OneNote first.
In the end they're both Microsoft's products so I'm pretty sure all the formatting will be preserved.

After you finish copy-pasting, you'll be able to open this OneDrive notebook in Outline with "+" at the top of notebook's pane > Open from OneDrive.
After that you'll be free to decide whether to sync the notebooks with OneDrive or change it to be local.

Please write to me if you need more information on how to open the notebooks and change location.
