I don't know if this is really an important topic, but I can't paste anything I copy. It's really irritating. Especially if I have to copy and paste a table or a lot of information. Would appreciate it, if I could receive some feedback.

Have you tried using Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V? I use it a lot and it works. It also works the normal right-click method.

Well, I just tried doing that, but it didn't seem to work. Either that, or I'm doing something wrong.

May I ask what you are trying to paste? The rich text editor can sometimes mess up and it copies the exact formatting and so it doesn't transfer properly especially things like tables. Try highlighting something, right click and copy as normal, but when you right click and paste select 'paste as plain text' instead. Try it now with the text in my post.

Highlight the text you want to copy and click Ctrl + C. Then, press Ctrl + V where you want to paste it. Did you did it this way?

I tried it both ways, the way you gentlemen explained. It does not seem to work for me.

I'm guessing you were probably trying to copy and paste white text which just wasn't showing up since, well the box is white.

One alternative is just copy-pasting as normal and then selecting all the text and pressing the eraser at the top in the rich text editor controls. That removes all of the formatting.

When I copy something (that hasn't been posted on this forum) it wont let me paste it by right clicking the mouse and doing it that way. However if I use the Ctrl + V it will always let me paste.

I had the same exact issue when i installed the new update for Windows 8 all the sudden i can't "Quote" or "Copy & Paste" anymore whenever i tried to use Internet Exploer

 

What Browser and PC are you using?

 

I installed Firefox and i haven't had any issues since have you tried installing a new browser too see if it works?

Quote doesn't work on IE 11, it is a bug in IPB.
