Tips to Recreate PDF Newsletters as a Web Page

Please keep the following tips in mind as you recreate PDF newsletters as web pages. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact [email protected].

  1. Create a landing page for your newsletters. This page will contain the links to the individual newsletters.
  2. Optional:  Under the link to the individual newsletter, you may want to add links to each article.  (This is similar to a table of contents.)  This is usually done by creating an anchor for each subheading in the newsletter; then create a link to that subheading.
  3. To paste content from a PDF or Word document into a web page, use the Paste as Plain Text button!
  4. If the PDF or Word document contains hyphenated words, be sure to remove the hyphens after you paste the content to the web page.
  5. If the PDF or Word document contains bulleted text, the bullets may be converted to a symbol bullet on the web page. The symbol bullets are not true bullets; therefore, delete these symbol bullets and reformat the text as true bullets by using the Bullet List or Numbered List button.
  6. Use the Heading styles to format your article titles.
  7. If you upload images or files, rename these so that there are no spaces or special characters in the file name. (Exception: Hyphens are permitted.)
  8. Depending upon the length of the content, you may want to left align all photos or you may choose to alternate between left and right alignment for the photos.
