Essay – copy/paste from Word, maintaining integrity of symbols


Hi – a bit out of my league here…  kindly asking for help.  

Am looking to have an essay field of 300 words to take formatted text from word and maintain its formatting with greek letters, superscripts/subscripts.  How can that be done, if at all possible on this platform?  

Appreciate the guidance!

    Any help, anyone, please…???

      Thank you for your suggestion.

      I read and re-read everything that was humanly possible about the essay fields. Yes, it does take the greek characters but fails in subscripts/superscripts.  

      Not sure I can afford pro-services for this project…

      Thank you!

        Have you tried using the Essay / Long Answer question type:

        This is the closest out-of-the-box question for text input. The question will accept foreign/special characters but I’m not sure about superscripts/subscripts and perhaps not the additional formatting that you are referring to.

        You can also set a character limit on this question:

        If this question doesn’t get you what you are looking for, I think the only other option would be a custom question/solution. SurveyGizmo has a Pro Services team that can help:

        Hope this helps!
