    So it's not just me - I tried to do some cut and paste last night and it wouldn't work. I assumed I was doing something wrong as I am not great with techie stuff.

    I will try just now and see if I am still failing- nope I can't get it to work.

      ah ha - I was having trouble recently too I can use keys (ctrl V) but not right click so can't pick up formatting - well it works sometimes, thought I was having a senior moment!

      Will mention it tomorrow.

            I use Chrome, and it seems to be working on some things but not others, very annoying.

                if when you are using chrome you can see an orange arrow top right corner that means there is an update for Chrome, I had one the other day, Herky have you tried a different browser? where are you having the issues? is it just on this site or others? has your computer got an update to install?

                  I am not sure when it does it, was having trouble on PC copying from word, I could ctrl & V but I couldn't right click and match style.

                  but It was intermittent!

                      Weird ... cut and paste a bit of a census onto a WORD doc - no problems but can't do it here. I can cut and paste within the WORD doc.
                      I haven't had notification for an update yet but perhaps that will sort it out.
                      Hubby updated his laptop a couple of days ago and now takes ages on start up.

                      Haven't tried a different browser as I like to stick to firefox but I will try that shortly.

                            I had a huge Windows update yesterday, could not believe how long it took, was hoping it would have changed things but it hasn't.

                              you can use the keys ctrl &v though, just not the mouse?

                                  I will check, see how I can see them. Also need to see if it is same in Firefox. It seems intermittent, so thought there must be something i was doing wrong.

                                  Keyboard keys always work. But that way can't choose formatting.

                                  so it posts with an odd font!

                                    Also, remember that some websites/resources do not allow right-click menu's to discourage copy/paste.
