Anyone having problems copy and pasting from Word or other text into the forum threads?

I haven't recently, but I did when I was using Internet Explorer - once I switched to Chrome I had no problems :)

I didn't have any problems before the maintenance shut down.

If this continues to be a problem, can you give a few more details so we can pass along to AQ Techie?

It's still a problem. Can't copy and paste from anywhere. I tried copy and paste of your posted sentence above both by highlight ctrl + c a p , and also by highlight right click copy and paste, neither worked.

 

I tried clicking the above icons to share info from my clipboard, no luck.

 

I can copy and paste everywhere but here, and I could copy and paste fine before the shut down for maintenance. Hopes this gives you the info you need.

I had the same issue last night. Generally, I write in Word and then just copy and paste into the response box, but was unable to do so (Ctrl V was a no go and I couldn't bring up the Paste option with a right click). I tried to use the paste from Word tab at the top of the response box but it didn't do anything.

Just wanted to mention that I'm having the same problem with pasting. It started after the maintenance shut down.

I'm having this problem too: I can't even quote others. This seems to be an IE exclusive issue since the maintenance; it doesn't happen when I use Firefox. Firefox isn't my default browser, though, so I want this fixed for IE.

I had the same problem until recently. I was using IE, and had to switch to Firefox whenever I came to AQ in order to be able to copy/paste and quote. I think it's because of maintenance. Maybe something was added to the site's programing code that causes IE to no longer be compatible with the website.

Thanks for the feedback.  This has happened in the past with IE after an upgrade.  We will report it to AQTechie and he will apply a system patch.

Whenever I cut and paste, the format changes.  Different fonts and colors.  Some times I will post and the submission will tell me that I need to post something.  I have to post 3-4 times before it takes.  Other time, when it does post, it posts 2-3 identical posts.

Quite confused and frustrated.
