Is anyone else having a problem pasting in a post in Bleeping Computer using IE 11?  I am not able to use ctrl-v, right click and paste or use the paste button in the editor.  I have seen it happen on one other forum I use and I just noticed they are both IP Board forums.

 

PS -  I have replicated this issue on 3 individual workstations, 2 using Win 7 Pro (64) and one using Win 7 HP (32)

Yes this is a known Invision Power Boards issue with IE11.

Thanks! Just happened to see that on the forum for Invision Power Boards (of course I had to switch to Chrome to paste the link):

What version of Firefox?

Also disabling the rich text editor by toggling the 'light switch' in the upper left corner has been proven to be a work around for the copy and paste issue in IE. Don't know if it does anything for Firefox.

Copy/paste works absolutely fine for me on Firefox.

This is the bug report at IPB for the IE11 issue. It deals with the fact that the included version of the embedded editor doesn't yet support IE11

Try disabling the editor by clicking the toggle in the upper left corner that looks like a light switch. Thats the same work around for IE11. Then do your copy and paste.

Yup, success in IE 11, after you paste you can "flip" the switch back to do regular editing.

You're welcome. Hopefully IPB will have a third party fix we can implement soon.
