Draft 2 Digital Product Description help - Sorted now by the brilliant David Wailing

This post was last modified: 05 Aug 2013 05:22 PM by DavidHaynes.
I was just trying to upload a book onto D2D and got to the product description part.
It appears very rigid. I can't add line breaks and can't format it at all. As it stands it would just go live with a paragraph, which isn't acceptable.
I've gone through the process several times with my other titles and don't recall this being a problem. All the blurbs have line spaces etc, so am I missing something? Anyone else had problems or is it just me?

I've just uploaded my books to D2D and it worked fine. Have you tried pasting your text into Notepad first, then copying from Notepad into D2D? If there's any formatting code on your text, this will remove it.

Thanks, David. Alas when I right click for paste onto the description it doesn't bring up the option to paste. It doesn't bring up anything!

Edit. Control V works!

DW, you're a star!
