Copy & Paste

Is it possible to copy & paste from MSword to the post text box. I do see the little icons that say they are for "paste as Plan text" and "Paste from word" they don't however appear to do anything at all.

 

Honestly my first inclination was to just move on, believing that it was almost certainly easier to find something out there that was easier to work with than this. Low & behold I was mistaken in this idea. It defies understanding the depths and extent that some web developers will go to, to make their pages unusable.

OK so that didn't work at all. In fact after clicking around on the different buttons i.e. "Paste From Word" etc I ended up having to refresh the page just to be able to type directly into the box.

 

So it looks like I have to use Chrome for this site. I was going to have a try at Firefox. That turned out to be a disaster. I spent all day yesterday cleaning up the mess that Firefox created. It seems these days If you try to install Firefox you will get a pile of other garbage bundled with it and if you're not careful you'll end up with a bunch of stupid garbage on your machine . I ended up having to find and perform the Windows Restore which has replace "last Known Good Configuration" which Microsoft has so cleverly hidden in Windows 8. Doing that and reinstalling other software took most of the day

 

So anyway enough of me venting and tanks for your response as it turns out to be the only actual real solution.

I use chrome day to day, but I tried Firefox and IE with regard to your copy/paste question. Firefox worked just fine, IE failed in this specific context but otherwise worked fine for the rest of the site. I've also never had an issue with a bunch of crap when installing Firefox. Sounds like maybe you grabbed some unofficial installer from a third-party that bundled a bunch of crap rather than the one official Mozilla one.

 

 

Anyway, other than the IE pasting issue, it sounds like whatever problems you have are specific to just you and your machine.
