Is there a "trick" to formatting emails? Seems unless emails are created right in Blackboard, the formatting often is not correct. For example, recipients receive emails with either too much or no space between paragraphs. Suggestions?
I'm assuming you are writing the emails in Word and them copy and pasting them into Blackboard? From a technical perspective when you do this Blackboard is trying to convert word's formatting rules into HTML format and they are not always compatible or may look different. There are a few ways to get around this issue:
The main thing to be aware of is that Blackboard uses HTML to format text, so the best way to ensure formatting is correct is to format it within the Blackboard editor, or find a HTML editor that you like (e.g. Dreamweaver) and use that for editing.
The other trick regarding paragraph spacing is that a hard return (hitting enter) in Blackboard creates a new paragraph with a line spacing gap, whereas a soft return (Shift+Enter) shifts the text to a new line, without a line space.
