Troubleshooting: Vestorly Email Text Formatting

Category: Email

If you are having trouble formatting your text in Vestorly, it is likely because you’re copy and pasting from another editor like Word.

Why does Word text look strange when pasted into Vestorly?

Vestorly emails are HTML just like a webpage. Microsoft Word however use their own language that outputs text and styles.

It therefore makes sense that merely pasting from Word won’t work in Vestorly as a different language is used in the two.
