Posted:I guess this goes in the technical section...In previous posts I have wanted to copy and paste websites from my browser as well as quotes from other previous posts but can't figure out how. I have cut and pasted from word documents but not from other websites. It seems I can't paste stuff like that in the "message" section of the forum using the traditional "edit>copy-paste" method. Is there another way? Or do I need to manually type it each time?

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:You should be able to copy and paste just fine. Sometimes the text box doesn't get updated properly though so it may look like it didn't paste when it actually did. Try doing a cut and paste, and then hit enter or type something so that the text box knows to refresh itself. That always seems to work for me.

Posted:Wierd... I figured it out. I can't cut and paste using the AOL menus at the top of the page. They give it as an option but it doesn't work. It does work if I use "control x, c, or v" Wierd.Well, now at least I know how to do it... Thanks all.
