How do I paste a Word document table into the DGS editor?

To paste a table from a Word document:

  1. Create your table in Word.

  2. Select the entire table and hit CTRL+C keys to copy the table.

  3. In DGS, navigate to your document and locate the item in the Detail Tree where you want to insert the table.

  4. Open the item in the DGS Editor by selecting the item and clicking the Edit Item icon.

  5. In the edit screen place your cursor in the position you want the table to be pasted.

  6. Go to the toolbar at the top of the edit screen and click on the “Paste Table from Word” icon.

  7. A small pop up window will ask you “Is this a Word Table?”, if yes, click on “OK.”

  8. Another window will open, place your cursor inside the window and hit the CTRL+ V keys on your keyboard.

  9. Once the table appears in the screen, click on the “OK” button.

  10. This will take you back to the DGS edit window where the newly pasted table will appear, click on the “Save” or “Save & Exit” button to save the table and return to the Detail screen.

  11. The table has been inserted and can be edited in the DGS editor if necessary.
