No More Copy and Paste?
- ElsieDee Jul 6, 2007 12:19 PM
I just noticed that I can no longer copy and paste text on CH. I am using IE 6.
In the past, I would go to a thread like this one:
Being interested in the suggested places, I would then click and highlight the relevant text (in this case, the address) and then Ctrl + C the highlighted text. I'd then open another browser window, go to a search engine (Google) and then Shift + Insert which would paste the text into the search field, which I could then search on (often looking for either a website or a map to the location).
Now I am unable to click on and highlight the desired text, which means that if I want to map the location of the most recent addition to the thread (Peacock Donuts) I have to go back and forth between two browser windows, as I type the relevant information into a search engine.
Has this option been intentionally removed? Or is this a bug? If the former, please bring back the option. If the latter, please fix.
re: Chris VR
I'm using IE 6.0.2x, and just discovered the Copy and Paste is no longer working for me either. Worked yesterday and before that; doesn't today. Can't copy your post, Chris. But I can copy/paste from Boston.com:
Storms bring down trees, knock parachuters off course
A series of fast-moving thunderstorms surged across Massachusetts
So I don't think it's browser-related - seems to be CH-related.
ElsieDee, I'm having the same problem with the same browser.
I can no longer highlight text to copy and paste. When I put the cursor on a post, click and drag, nothing happens.
However, I can do it with this box as I am writing...just not with anything that has already been written and posted.
Not that this helps IE users, but no issues on C&P with Firefox or Safari - just tried from both.
