There is this forum I’m a member of, and when I want to post a reply to a thread I usually type it all out in ‘Word’ first, then cut from ‘Word’ and try to paste into the forum’s reply box/window, but when I right click the mouse in the reply box of the forum, the paste button in the popup menu is not highlighted but faint, and won’t work. In the edit tab at the top of the page the cut, copy, and past buttons are all not highlighted but faint too, and won’t work.
I have no problems with cutting and pasting into this forum though.
If in the edit tab at the top of the page the cut, copy, buttons are greyed out, that means that you have not selected (highlighted) any text. They will become active (bold black) once you select something on the page. Same for the Paste button it will only show active (bold black) if there is something on the clipboard.
Yes it does, lotvic.
I did not try their suggestions for I have internet explorer and not Firefox etc.
I have solved the problem though by adding the forum web site I can’t cut, or copy, and paste to, to my ‘compatibility view’ list, by clicking Tools / Compatibility View settings / then clicking the add button for the web site highlighted in the ‘Add this website:’ box.
Sometimes I have to redo adding the site, or add other sites I’m copying from.
Thanks everyone for trying to help.
