If your communication content is already created in Microsoft Word, you may be able to copy and paste the content directly into the ChamberMaster editor screen. Content that works well include character formatting styles of bold, underline, and font changes.
Content that does not copy well include columns, graphics, and tables. Documents with these items should either be recreated directly in ChamberMaster by editing the HTML source code by clicking the Source icon or included as a link. (see Insert link to PDF file”).
Why do columns, graphics, and tables not copy well from Microsoft Word into ChamberMaster? Most internet based applications such as ChamberMaster base their functions on a programming language called HTML. Transferring data directly from programs that are not programmed in HTML may not always be successful. If you know the HTML language, editing is allowed by clicking the Source icon in the ChamberMaster editor window.

In Microsoft Word, open the desired content to be copied.
