FAQ Answer


Copying into Desire2Learn from Word

Desire2learn is not letting me copy and paste from Word. I don't want to retype everything and I don't want it as an attachment.


For pasting into D2L from Word, try the following options:

  • Under the Basic tab, you can paste but only using the keyboard shortcut for paste which is CTRL - V.
  • Under the Advanced tab, you can select the paste icon or the Paste from Word icon. Paste from Word opens a popup window telling you to use CTRL-V on the keyboard to paste.
  • Under Basic or Advanced, if I space down several lines, the right click to paste seems to work again.
