Today, there are thousands of different word processing programs out there, all of them with different formatting and designs. 

So, it can be pretty hard to maintain the format of your document when swapping between platforms, especially by using copy and paste. 

At INK, we know how frustrating it can be having to format your files over and over again every time you swap platforms. 

To help with this, we have added an importing and exporting feature to INK to try and reduce these formatting issues as much as possible. 

Here is a quick guide on how to import and export your documents to and from INK. 

Importing Files Into INK

Naturally, you can copy and paste text and images into INK, but it can sometimes lead to formatting issues, particularly for large files. 

But, if it's just a simple file, sometimes copy and pasting can be the fastest way to achieve this. 

However, if it's a larger or more complex file, you may want to import it into INK.

You can do so by clicking on the file tab in the top left corner and then choosing what file type you would like to import

Currently, INK only supports the importing of .txt and .html files as well as from URLs, but this is something we are currently working on expanding. 

Once you select the file, it should import into INK. From there, you can start your writing and optimization process. 

Exporting Files

Just like with importing, you can also copy and paste your text and images from one platform to the next, but this can cause issues. 

For larger files, you can follow the same process and navigate to the file tab to find our exporting options. 

As well as .txt and .html files, you can also export your content as an .md file.

However, it's often best to keep your content as an .ink file. By using .txt and .html files, you won't be able to export some parts of your content, such as metadata, particularly with .txt files. 

The INK WordPress Plugin

WordPress powers 33.6% of all the pages on the Internet, making it one of the most powerful platforms for your content. With that said, we've made it simple for you to import your .ink files into WordPress with the INK WordPress plugin. 

You can download our WordPress plugin here

Once installed, you can upload any .ink file directly into your WordPress platform, making it easier than ever for you to keep working without any interruptions.
