It's not working. I'm Ctrl-C and then Ctrl-V in the text box and I get nothing!? Mac issue?

Hi Harry -

Hmm... yes, copying and pasting should be easy and I apologize if you're having trouble with it.

I'm sure you're already doing it, but just in case, please be sure that your cursor is clicked inside the text box before pasting. If it's still not working after that, you may want to try clearing your browser's cache, as that usually clears up any weirdness with Sitebuilder Plus.

Please let me know if you're still having trouble and if so, what page you're working on.

Thanks,
Aubrey

It doesn't work for me either. But only at work. I use the software at work and have a different user ID. I posted about my copy and paste issue earlier this afternoon from work, but I don't see my post now. I did go back in while I was still at work to see if there was a response yet. So I know it posted but now it's gone.

But I digress. Copy and pasting doesn't work at work, but it does work at home. I don't know if I have different versions of the software or what. But it works for me at home.

It would be really nice to get this fixed at work.

Hi Laura1150,

Welcome!

It sounds copy/paste works but your computer doesn't seem to recognize the keyboard shortcut to copy/paste.

Please try one of these alternate methods:

*highlight the text

Click Edit > Copy

or

Right Click the highlighted text > Copy

Hope this helps, thanks!

Copy and paste works in all other applications. It's only in the sitebuilder application that it doesn't work.
