Posting an article from Word with embedded pitcures and tables

Posted by W. Richard Gunter

I have completed an article on Word that has embedded pictures and tables imported from a variety of sources. When I tried a simple copy-paste from Word to the Article page the photos and table did not appear.

What is the simplest method of transferring this type of document?

Hi Richard

I don't believe that there is a "simple" way.

I think that the only way is for photos to be uploaded as normal and then use the Mindat edit links for the photos. For tables you would either have to create them as a photo and import, or create a table using the Mindat mark-up language.

Hi Keith:

Thanks for the information. I will have to upload these photos with the purpose of using them in the article.

Hi Richard,

Keith is correct, essentially. Lately I have been writing for mindat. I wanted to write off-line and upload. I was asked to please not try it. Anything uploaded or copy-and-pasted evidently requires a lot of tedious editing. As a result, I have done the writing using the mindat editor that is accessible through your mindat page. At first the Mindat markup language gave me some considerable problems, but once I figured it out, it is not bad. You can do most things from the toolbar at the top of the editor And if you know any HTML, you can do some things that are not included. I am no expert but I will try to help if you PM me/

Hi Don:

Thanks for the offer.

I am currently writing up a second draft and once that is finished I will contact you on a PM and see what we can do.
