How come I cannot paste into this box? I know I can switch to HTML view but that leads to loss of css if I do a straight copy/paste (even from notepad++).
Can you describe the steps you are taking regarding copying and pasting? I seem to be able to copy and paste into either the regular reply box or the HTML editor box.
No - nothing happens at all for me. I'm typing in here just fine but when I paste text only right here, nothing happens. Nothing at all happens. This happens on the quick reply, new threads, full editor, etc. The only time I can past is if I go to the full editor and click the <html> button.
I am using IE11. Is that the problem? Can this be fixed? It's incredibly frustrating to try and post code snippets.
Maybe? Are your copy and paste functions working in other places (like MS Word and such)? I am using Chrome and not having any issues.
I find there are only issues when you try to reply to a thread from your mail link. It is best to go to the actual thread by clicking on its title, do your stuff and then go back to your unread links
I try to avoid the inbox anyways. I usually get to my goods by clicking Content > Authored or Participated > reply (and i'll usually click the little blue "Reply" link, not "reply to original post").
This also happens for me if I create a new thread.
If I'm the only one - it's likely IE11. I'm probably one of the only ones using that virus.
Do you have issues when you switch to another browser?
And this made me laugh pretty hard!:
I'm probably one of the only ones using that virus.
I don't remember that being an issue on ie11, but I am using Edge now in Windows 10
I think we might be on to something here still though. I remember, just a few months ago, I had IE 9. I would paste something and it would appear that nothing would happen until I viewed the HTML editor. Everything I pasted was there, just not visible in the text editor. So, when I posted, I had repeated text where I pasted multiple times. It wasn't embarrassing at all...
And of course... confirmed... it's IE 11. I can paste in FireFox. I'm not sure why I hadn't thought to test in another browser. However, IE 11 is what I primarily use. Any ideas as to why IE 11 sucks? Let me rephrase... any idea as to why GeoNet doesn't like IE 11 to paste?
I just test this in IE11 by copying test from WordPad and pasting it into a new discussion and a reply. Both tests pasted the content correctly.
It still doesn't work for me. I'm using Windows 7 if that makes a difference.
I also get random script error messages that pop up.
Hi Tyrone, following up to see if you are still unable to paste in IE11.
Probably. I don't know. I open Firefox, which I don't like, to view this forum. And no, I don't have another browser option.
I am using Windows 7 and ie 11 and get all sorts of strange things happening. Funny thing.... even when I use Visual Studio (MS product) half the time it the code does not work. I am using chrome for this site for some of the reasons you have stated.
