I can't copy and paste my diary from One Note

I tried copying and pasting my diary notes here to create a post and it won't allow me to. I even tried adding the link to One Note but it just adds a bunch of HTML codes instead of the actual words. It looks like all of my posts will have to be rewritten which is going to be a lot of work. I'm kind of bummed out about it, I think it would be more convenient if we could copy and paste if they are 100% original content that are ours. Hopefully in the near future this will change, but any suggestions would be very much appreciated . I just didn't want to have to retype everything that I've ever written because that's a lot of .

You don't need OneNote or Office because everything you write on PP will be automatically saved. By clicking restore catche you will get draft back. PP also has a good text editor.

Have you tried to just highlight and then hit control key (and hold it) then hit the C key. To paste hold the control key and hit the V key. I couldn't copy and paste either. But that way work.

I'm not familiar with One Note. But I write all my work here into a word processing program before pasting it into Persona Paper. Have you tried saving your files as .doc or odt. format and then pasting them into your editor here?

You didn't mention what or where your diary is, but it seems you are copying the entire code of the page and that's why you have the HTML included. If you paste it into notepad on a PC and then copy it from there, you should have only the text. Then you can paste that into PersonaPaper. One thing to be sure about is that you deleted it from your diary if that is on the web. And then you need to wait a few weeks until all search engines remove it from their indexing, otherwise you'll get penalized for duplicate content.
