Note: This feature is available only in the Enterprise Editions of PHPKB software.
The enterprise edition of PHPKB knowledge base software offers a new plugin, "Paste from MS Office" that provides clean copy-paste of content from MS Word, Excel, and documents from other popular content tools. It adds the "Paste from MS Office" toolbar button which opens up the content paste dialog box and makes it possible to paste clipboard data only on demand.
It automatically cleans up content from Microsoft Word, Excel and HTML sources to ensure clean, compliant content for knowledge articles. The plugin imports the word images and upload them to server without any additional effort. IE 11 doesn’t support the import of word images due to its security issues. However, this functionality works efficiently in latest version of Chrome, Firefox and IE edge browsers.
While filtering the content being pasted from Microsoft Word, it preserves the formatting and structure of the original document. Invalid and proprietary styles, tags and attributes are removed ensuring that the HTML is valid and closely matches to the formatting of original document.
If you paste content from Microsoft Word into your knowledge articles, you probably know the published article usually doesn’t match the site’s style. Fonts can be different, images missing and formatting not the same as of original document. This can be time consuming for content authors to fix, and usually involves manually editing HTML code. PHPKB knowledge base software automatically cleans pasted content, fixing these issues. Moreover, it automatically upload images to a server, helping you spend time on more productive tasks.
PHPKB software also takes care of tabular content pasted from Excel into your knowledge articles, automatically creating HTML compliant tables in the process. While developers are very familiar writing HTML tables, most content creators literally don’t know where to start. And then there’s the issue of manually entering their Excel data into the table. This isn’t a fun experience either. For users of both Word and Excel, this plugin will dramatically improve the content production experience you deliver to your clients.
PHPKB software also works its auto-magic for the cut and paste content from the web into your knowledge articles. Just as it cleans up rogue formatting from sources like MS Word, it does the same for web content. It removes classes, minimizing the chance of unwanted CSS overriding your stylesheets.
It also does the same for images, automatically linking to the source image URL. Perfect content, every time.
This plugin will also import images from pasted Microsoft Word & Excel content. When doing this, it extracts Base64 encoded images from the clipboard, convert them to PNG format and upload to the knowledge base assets.
