Cannot paste text into forums

I think there's a bug copy & pasting text into the forums.  I've used it before but it hasn't been working for me since yesterday.  I receive the message;

"Please use Ctrl+V/Cmd+V keyboard shortcuts to paste contents".

However Ctr+V & is not working.  Neither is RMB>Paste, though I expect that.

   OS?  Browser?  Around here (Mac, Firefox), I don't much like the way
it works, but Command/V does paste.

Thanks for the reply Steven.  I'm using ie11 on Win7 64-bit.  Command/V.  Is that a Mac thing?

   Other browser(s)?  Does Mouse-right not offer a Paste option?  (That
works here, too.)

> [...] Command/V. Is that a Mac thing?

   Yup.  Control, Option (Alt), and Command (cloverleaf) are the keys
(left to right) to the left of the Space bar.  (Sometimes you get an
Apple logo as well as a cloverleaf on the Command key.)  Cmd/X, Cmd/C,
and Cmd/V are the standard shortcuts for cut, copy, and paste,
respectively.

Re: Cannot paste text into forums

Hi Steven.  Mouse right-click produces the same error message.  I can't replicate the problem on Chrome or Firefox.  However they are not supported in my corporate environment.  Have you heard of anyone else having the problem with IE11?

   No, but there's no reason I should have.  I just awakened a Windows
10 system, and had no such trouble with Edge, IE, or Firefox.  Around
here:

Microsoft Edge 25.10586.0.0
Microsoft EdgeHTML 13.10586

Internet Explorer
Version: 11.103.10586.0
Update Versions: 11.0.28 (KB3134814)
Product ID: 00150-20000-00003-AA459

> [...] my corporate environment [...]

   Perhaps your corporate environment has other exotic limitations, too?

Re: Cannot paste text into forums

Thanks for looking into this.  It looks like corporate-wide settings.  I'm ok on my personal PC in IE.  I've got a loaner from work sitting next to it but that has the problem.
