  • copy & paste

    I have on several occasions tried to copy what I had typed in a post so that I didn't have to retype it (before submitting) after going and looking at something else in order to continue. If you right click on the screen you are typing there is a paste option but no copy option. Hope that makes sense but is there such a function on the forum that could be enabled?

    Make sure that the text that you want to copy is highlighted. The copy option won't become active otherwise. Just press the your mouse down and move your cursor over the text that you want to copy.

      I had tried that and the only thing I saw was "copy background". Is that the same thing?

        I don't think it is but on a version of windows that I have never used -- maybe it is...maybe someone else knows.

        I use a lot of keyboard commands---highlight then press the shift key then the c key. That will copy the text to your clipboard--and pressing the shift key and then the v key will paste it. Rural Alaskans should all have some keyboard skills because you never know when something will get spilled on your mouse and fry it.

            Bighorn,

            Check your User Control Panel on the board here. Under Edit Options, go to the very bottom of the page, check to see what version of Message Editor Interface you are using.

            If it is the "enhanced interface" version, that will preclude the mouse access copy & paste...Change it to either Standard or Basic controls and you should be able to copy to your lil' hearts content.....

            Hope that helps.

              Hey Bighorn KISS (keep it simple stupid). For some reason I was in there and changed that thinking it would be better(some time ago) and it caused me more confusion. It works now. Thanks Hippie

                Not a problem. I made the same mistake: "OOOH neat features"....Soon followed by muttering and confusion.....

                  Not that it really matters now that Hippie set it straight however blueberry was incorrect in this fix the correct way is: Highlight, then control "C" or "V" as using shift wont work.

                    You need to copy it to word and then paste from there. At least that's how I have done it in the past and in other applications.
