I am getting ready to post my first thread on ATS. What I need to know is can I use Microsoft word to write my post and cut and past it to this opening post box. Will my format be lost? I want to use my word program because of the grammer and spell checking option.

If I post my thread and noticed it is all messed up who do I contact to delete the thread?

Will the preview show all formating from Microsoft word (if I can use it)?

Thanks for your time.

No you are good to go, MS Word, cut and past.

You may have to redo some paragraph spacing but other than that you are OK.

You'll see it in the preview and you have 2 hours to edit, then the window of opportunity is set in ATS Stone.

Good-luck to you

You will lose formatting like italics, bold, headings, tables from MS Word to ATS. Regular text should be fine.

To check the formatting before, use the Preview button (next to the Post button), That brings up your post formatted.

Thanks for the quick replies and thanks Sauron for moving it to the correct forum. I never saw the freshman fourm in the Fourm section.
