Save 

This icon is one of the most self-explanatory of the icons.

Save

Clicking on this icon saves your work and refreshes the screen. If you were in full screen mode, then you will have been returned to the original screen. When you select save on a new page, it saves and closes the page, returning you to the Page Manager.


**NOTE** This only works in the Pages section. This does not work in the modules, such as the News Manager, that use the WYSIWYG.

Paste as Plain Text 

Pasting from a website? From Google Docs? Here’s the icon you need to use. This icon is used to paste from anywhere online by removing all formatting and code tags from text before putting it in your document.

All you need to do is copy the text from the other document, then use this button to paste it into the document. 

When the alert popup appears, simply click okay to acknowledge that you realize that Paste as Plain Text is on.

Paste as Plain Text

**NOTE** If you are pasting from a Word document, see the next section. This button will not work for Word Documents.
