I guess there's not much to do other than to go along with what has already been suggested (to copy from word on to notepad and from there to WP). The reason i haven't tried this yet, is because the article is rather long (10 pages to be correct) and would take too much time.
About the "paste to word" option, don't you mean "paste FROM word"? If that's it then, this is what I used to do and while it works for shorter articles without too many problems, it doesn't cut it with the long articles : /
I think you're right. But I mean even if I were to choose the upgraded version, I'd probably still have questions and bother you people :-p
Actually it's just about getting a hang of things as Cj mentioned. It's nice to know how things work, so that you'll be able to take advantage of the options that you have and maybe improve along the way.
Thanks to all that contributed.
