Re: "Paste" Doesn't Work

Try Ctrl+Insert(copy) and Shift+Insert(paste) that sometimes works when the "r-button" menu fails.

Thanks. I tested the copy and paste with Microsoft Word, and it works. However, I tried copying and pasting chess games from an email into a chess software, and they didn't work. But the strange thing is that I was always able to copy and paste those types of game notations into the chess software successfully before. I had noticed that I could not even copy some stuff from some websites since the website would not allow that, but I had been able to copy chess notations on emails before.

"1034" is 1034 mb. I've left that as it is.

grayed out.


Some files (i.e., some PDFs) are rigged such that the contents cannot be copied. I think with these files you can seemingly "copy" but there's really nothing in the clipboard, so subsequent "paste" is unavailable.
