Some javascript stuff seems to disable pasting into the Wysiwyg editor.

And it is not consistant. Sometimes you can and sometimes you cannot. I cannot find the pattern. But it is like 50/50. Not being able to paste text into the edit window is a huge problem.

I can paste if I change to pickaxe mode.

This we need fixed in 4.2.1

I have noticed that the half the time is more like half the topics.

It seems to be content dependent.

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 23 Jan 2008

I forgot to say that it is in IE I have the problem. And I do not have a problem pasting into THIS topic. Strange. I will try and characterize further.

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 23 Jan 2008

Isn't that known to be browser setting dependent?

-- TWiki:Main.FranzJosefGigler - 23 Jan 2008

Hmm. Good hint. Could be the internet zones in IE. Will check at office tomorrow

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 23 Jan 2008

Yes. Franz is right. In Internet Explorer version 6 I can copy/paste in our Intranet TWiki but I cannot when I edit this bug item.

The reason is that our security setting for IE is setup to under Tools->Internet Options->Security->Internet Zone selected->Custom Level->Scripting->Allow paste operations via script is disabled. On our Intranet zone it is enabled.

What I have done is added develop.twiki.org as a trusted site in which "Allow paste.. via script" is enabled.

IE7 seems to have a different setup that I need to analyse a little more.

So there is no coding error here. I think there may be a small documentation task to be done for 4.2.1. I will try and investigate a little more the facts and experiment a little and do the doc update as required

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 03 Feb 2008

I have documented the way to enable copy paste in both IE6 and IE7 (there is a slight difference and especially in IE7 it is not obvious to a normal user).
