When inputting text from other documents (DOC, PDF, etc) into GoProposal templates, depending on where you've copied and pasted it from, there can be extraneous code lurking in the background that effects the formatting in your documents.

This can cause the layout and appearance of the text in your proposal or engagement letter PDFs to be inconsistent with how it has been setup in your admin area.

How Do I Fix This?

To fix this, we recommend pasting the text into a plain text editor first (such as notepad), then copying and pasting this back into the required section in GoProposal, and reapplying the formatting (subheadings and bullet points).
