Text Copied duplicates when the enter key is pressed. Double clicking to edit often moves the cursor to a different part of the page. and many other strange things happen.

There are many having huge problems...and these have been going on for a while. There are a few tips that help but the bugs have not been solved. In fact, I can't confirm that homestead even has been able to recreate the problem even though many of us have it every time we edit.

Hi Roger0391,

There can be issues with copying and pasting depending on what/where you are copying from. If you are copying from an external application such as Word, then that can cause some issues. However if you are just copying and pasting from one text box to another within Sitebuilder, it should work fine if you are using Internet Explorer v. 8 or 9, or Firefox. We've had some reports that people randomly have problems with Chrome and Safari, or other less popular browsers.

We are constantly working to make the software compatible with all major browsers, but as of right now Firefox is probably the most compatible.

Let me know if you try Firefox and still have the issue.

I use Firefox and have these issues and other text glitches constantly. The problem lies with Sitebuilder. You can learn more at the forum linked to above.
