Unable to use CRTL+C/CTRL+V when creating a new instructable! Answered

 Hello there,

I am trying to create a new item in Instructables.

I have already made a document for the work instruction and thought I'd just use copy/paste.

For some reason I am unable to do this.

Any reason for this? Is there something I should check?

Share & Enjoy.

OKAY ME MUPPET.

The reason that I couldn't do CRTL+V was something to do with the browser. I was initially trying to do it in a basic Chrome browser. When I went to firefox I was able to do it no problem.

Share & Enjoy.

The function is located on your machine rather than the site. What OS, and what do you mean by "Share & Enjoy" (that's a CTRL-C-V)

 I worked it out and then added the reason straight away.

I decided to leave it in just in case somebody else found a similar problem using Google's CHROME browser as I did.

Share & Enjoy is from Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy aka H2G2.. 

Share & Enjoy.

 lol I thought it was like a Pro Feature or something. Either way, a small price to pay for Chrome's awesomeness.

Thanks for enlightening me on that, I do appreciate it. And Zippy was my favorite, he wasn't a soppy-cissy-pants like the rest of them...
