Preserving Word formatting when pasting into Dreamweaver CS3
Hi- I noticed that I lose all Word formatting (italics, bold, paragraph returns etc.) when I paste into Dreamweaver CS3. I tried changing paste preferences and the paste special preferences in Dreamweaver but it still doesn't work and I still lose formatting.
Does anyone have a solution to this annoying problem?

Is this for a TTF True Type Font or some other font format?
Assuming you're running Windows, it all depends on which operating system you're running. Typically PCs use True Type Fonts (TTF files), which are installed and stored in the Fonts folder, which is a sub-folder of the Windows folder.
Some True Type Fonts are only available in Bold, Italic, Normal and Bold Italic. Some are also available in more or less variations. Some fonts are only available in Bold, some only in Italic, etc.
You may need to check if you have the Normal font installed, and it may be the font selected is only installed in the bold version. Another possibility is your Normal font file might be damaged or corrupted to where it's no longer recognized by your system.
You can check out the Fonts folder to see if the typeface you're trying to use is installed properly in the Normal style.
If not, select another font and see if that works for you. This would be a good indication that it's simply a matter of the Normal font variation not being installed properly.
Does this help
The text that you move or copy can have a font or other kind of formatting applied to it, such as bold or italic, that differs from the document where you are pasting the text. For example, you can move or copy text that is bold, 10-point Times New Roman, and paste it next to text that is regular, 11-point Calibri. If you want the pasted text to be in Times New Roman instead of Calibri, you can preserve its look.
Select the text that you want to move or copy, and then press CTRL+X to move the text, or press CTRL+C to copy the text.
Click where you want to paste the text, and then press CTRL+V.
Click Paste Options , which appears after you paste the text.

Melissa, try saving your Microsoft Word document as a standard ASCII text only document (File > Save As), then use that new non-Word document to copy and paste. This avoids all the strange text formatting and problem codes from Word. Format your text in Dreamweaver and perhaps try using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for formatting your pages. Best of luck!
Import Microsoft Office documents (Windows only)
You can insert the full contents of a Microsoft Word or Excel document in a new or existing web page. When you import a Word or Excel document, Dreamweaver receives the converted HTML and inserts it into your web page. The file’s size, after Dreamweaver receives the converted HTML, must be less than 300K.
Instead of importing the entire contents of a file, you can also paste portions of a Word document and preserve the formatting. Note: If you use Microsoft Office 97, you cannot import the contents of a Word or Excel document; you must insert a link to the document.
Open the web page into which you want to insert the Word or Excel document.
In Design view, do one of the following to select the file:
Drag the file from its current location to the page where you want the content to appear.
Select File > Import > Word Document or File > Import > Excel Document.
In the Insert Document dialog box, browse to the file you want to add, select any of the formatting options from the Formatting pop-up menu at the bottom of the dialog box, and then click Open.
Inserts unformatted text. If the original text is formatted, all formatting will be removed.
Text With Structure
Inserts text that retains structure, but does not retain basic formatting. For example, you can paste text and retain the structure of paragraphs, lists, and tables, without retaining bold, italics, and other formatting.
Text With Structure Plus Basic Formatting
Inserts both structured and simple HTML-formatted text (e.g., paragraphs and tables, as well as text formatted with the b, i, u, strong, em, hr, abbr, or acronym tag).
Text With Structure Plus Full Formatting
Inserts text that retains all structure, HTML formatting, and CSS styles.
Clean Up Word Paragraph Spacing
Eliminates extra space between paragraphs when you paste your text if you selected Text With Structure or Basic Formatting.
The contents of the Word or Excel document appear in your page.
Right-click the field in the form, and select Properties. Under the ALL tab, look for the Font colour, font style, etc).
