The WIP posting is being cockblocked by technical difficulties, and I'm hoping one of you knows a work-around. When I try to copy the text over from my GoogleDoc, DW doesn't seem to be able to put a cut-tag around it. When I copied it text-only to Open Office, re-added the italics, and copied that into DW, I get annoying extra spacing at the paragraph breaks, despite OO being totally convinced the whole thing's single-spaced with no added paragraph formatting. Anybody have any tricks?

Wow, that's weird. Maybe try pasting the text in, then posting the entry private without the cut tag. Then edit the entry and try adding the cut tags then.

download or export instead of going through copy-paste, that should work a whole lot better

Are you using the rich text editor in the posting page on dreamwidth, or not? Try not using it, if you were using it before. And if you're not posting from Dth's page but from a client, which client is it?

I don't know why these things happen, but I'm sure if you send me things (by which I mean, preferably, TXT or RTF files) I can make it GO and then send you back a version that will post like you want it to (tomorrow, though, because I'm going to sleep first!).
