problem with copy/paste

  carkev 15:39 14 Aug 07

I can't copy text from a website and paste into Word etc ... but can do so offline.
any suggestions would be appreciated.

Have you tried using the Keyboard Shortcuts for Copy (Ctrl+C) and Paste (Ctrl+V) instead of the Edit Paste ?

thanks for suggestions ....

shortcuts were tried and made no difference,
and the paste option on menus is available but does not paste !

I have also tried a clipboard manager program (Clipguru)that does capture the 'copy' and then if used to 'paste back to clipboard' It will paste it into Word ok .. why this 2 stage process works is strange I know, but I don't really want such a clumsy work-around.

Some web sites make it difficult to copy off them, does your prob apply to all web sites on line? David

hi David,
yes - problem is only when online - any site
