cannot copy or paste within message field

Apr 28, 2012 4:30 AM

Tags: #paste #copy #function

If I copy some text from another source like a word doc or email, and try and paste into this message field, the system will not allow me to do this. The only options that present themselves are "Insert link, Image, Alignment, insert table".

 

And if I write something within this message field and then select and copy and then try and paste  this section somewhere else within this message, the system will not allow it.

 

 

This is EXTREMELY annoying.

 

Why Why why ??!

    Maybe you need some patience!

    Opine your favorite editor.

    Type you text.

    Use the <Ctrl>+A key combination to copy your text.

    Use the <Ctrl>+C key combination to copy your text.

    Go to reply box.

    Sent cursor in the reply box.

    Make sure the cursor is in the box.

    Use the <Ctrl>+V key combination to paste.

     

    Y9u have to use the key combinations for pasting as the web browser's menu options are not available within the reply box.

     

    And how do you cut and paste?

    >  First of all what do you mean by 'favorite editor' ?

     

    How many editing programs programs d you have on your computer?

     

    Windows come with edline,Notepad, and WinWord. Then you can add MS Office. OpenOfficeorg, NotePad++, TextPad and others. Not to include the the editors in all of the possible email programs you could be using.

     

    > And why on earth would i need to do all this? It should be simply right click and the option to cut , copy or paste should be available to you without having to do all that <ctrl> +A key rubbish.

     

    Since this reply box does not support a menu item with a cut and paste menu or tool option, it is the only method available.

     

    If you do not like it, maybe you should run this site for Adobe.

     

    I  am aware of many forums that do also do not have menu items or tools for cutting to and pasting from the OS clipboard.

     

    Your problem should be directed to the administrator of this forum and not the other users.

    For what you are paying for this service, and what I am bing paid, I would rather not have to explain every possible way to perform a very common task.

     

    I copy  several hundred lines of data on a regular basis and the key board shortcuts are  just easier.

     

    Also many times user systems need some time to fully download a web page and set  up the display on a client system before one can even start to type. You clearly did not communicate your issue clearly enough.

    Why did you post this in the forum for Acrobat Forms?
