Find the Paste from Word button When you copy from a text editor, a lot of times it will carry hidden, embedded styles along with it. Not only will the styles differ from normal text on your website, but they will break any web-based text editor. To work around this, we have a special button to paste from Word. Using this method is the safest way to bring text from any text editing software into your product description. First, click on the clipboard icon in the Navigation Bar Add your text in the box below Paste your content here. Click OK to continue. And you are done! These same steps can be re-used anywhere you see the editors toolbar, such as editing content pages as well as blog posts.

Virteom makes rolling back changes to your website incredibly easy. In the editor, simply use the sliding bar on the bottom of your screen. You will see the number of available versions that you can roll back, and can use the sliding bar to navigate through them. Virteom will store up to 50 versions of each page, creating a safety net in case you wish to change your design, or make accidental changes. The highest number is the most recent record. For example, you have five versions on a particular page. Lets say you want to reformat your page from version three, and try to branch out from the old layout. Simply navigate to this version, and begin making your changes. Once you hit save, it will be saved as record six. Q: Where do my other versions go if I do this? Wont I lose versions four and five?
