Links not cutting & pasting ?

  *mark 01:31 10 Mar 2003

On a couple of chat programs (icq & msn) i am no longer able to cut & paste a WORKING link - ie the text cuts and pastes but the recipient isnt directed to the URL when they click, so they have to cust & paste the link themselves...

Ive checked for viruses and trojans but all seems ok there, so i presume i have accidently changed my prefferences or/and settings !

What do i need to do to fix this problem.

Im running WindowsXPHome.

Many thanks,

Do you mean Copy and Paste?

Here, all we need to do is type or paste a URL and it is automatically converted to a
click here active link. If you follow the above link it will explain how to format links on the Serif Forum. That method may also work on other forums.

If you copy text containing a link from this forum, all you get is the text click here. No link at all.
