    Forum trouble

    Am I missing something? Why cant I figure out how to paste text in the thread reply box? No clipboard options at the top and no paste option when I right click.

    Click the icon in the lower right corner of the post you wish to reply to. It's an icon of a pen and paper.

    Well you can quote the message you are replying to if you click on quote message in reply, just under the quick reply box. If you want to quote other messages in the thread then you'll have to cut/paste and use the icon that looks like a message box on the toolbar in the quick reply editor. This is hard to explain by typing.

    Yeah I can quote a post in the same thread. So say I get some info from another site/source, I highlight the text and right click then copy. I come back to the reply box here and click the quote icon up top and get the quote string - [QUOTE][/QUOTE ] -. Now how do I put the copied text between the quote tags? I can't find a paste option anywhere.

    Highlight text you wish to copy and hit CTRL-C. To paste, move cursor to location you'd like to paste the text and hit CTRL-V

    NCHeel, are you using Firefox?

    I too notice that you cant right click/copy paste into the chat boxes.

    Also, i notice in the PM boxes there is no way to add an attachment.

    Mike, can that be fixed?

    Yeah firefox is the only browser I use. been using it so long I forget to mention it. The ctrl C and ctrl V work with it.

    I tried it one time before, but forgot what letter was paste. Kept trying ctrl P but that is the print function. Hahaha!!!
