This normaly happens when copying and pasting from word documents, have you tried copying it into notepad and trying that way?

If you copy from word or other text editors like it, you'll want to paste in the copy as Plain Text.

You can do this on Mac by holding: CMD + Option + Shift then hitting V

Can do this on a Windows Machine by holding: Ctrl + Shift then hitting V

By default when copying text, our machines try to copy the styling as well, that is where all the additional extraneous characters are coming from. :smile:

Hope this helps, please let me know if you have any questions! :smiley:

Thank you,

Waldo
