Adding Content to Live Text

• • • Live Text is a bit cumbersome as a Word Processer.

There are two common ways of placing your content in Live Text. Both require you begin by creating your work in MS Word. It is best to save your work as Rich Text Format or 97 2003 compatible.

The first method places your document in Live Text as an attachment.

Highlight the text within the box, click on delete.

Where it says Section title, provide a title based on your topic.

Click on the word edit to the right of File Attachment(s) at the bottom of the page.

Click on Upload New File.

Click on “Browse” and find the document you would like to attach.

Once you find and select your document, click “Upload File”.

Once it is loaded, click on “Save & Finish” in the upper right hand corner.

This document is ready to be submitted for review to your instructor.

Instructions to submit for review are in the following pages.

Some instructors will prefer your work appear directly in Live Text rather than as an attachment. The following demonstrates how you can copy and paste your work in Live Text.

Highlight the text within the box, click on delete.

Where it says Section title, provide a title based on your topic.

Next you will open the project you created in word. CTRL A to select all of your document and CTRL C to copy. Come back over to Live Text. Click on the Clip Board with the piece of paper. (Paste) Click on “Save & Finish” in the upper right corner of the page.
