How can I fix text formatting problems in the Commentary field of the Edit Element Linkage dialog box?

October 10th, 2013

If you discover spacing problems with the formatted text you’ve copied and pasted from word processing software into the Commentary field, you can fix it using a text editor like NotePad++, TextEdit, or BBEdit.

  • Open the Edit Element Linkage box, copy and paste the text from the Commentary field into your text editor. This will remove hidden formatting code from the word processing program.
  • Delete unnecessary lines, spaces, and punctuation.
  • Copy the revised text from the text editor and paste it back into the Commentary text field of the Edit Element Linkage dialog box.
  • Save your changes.
