Hello,

I cant paste text into a post. Is this just me or is this something NI has chosen to not allow? I'm sure I've been able to do it up until now.

Thanks.

    Back on Windows 10 again here. Maybe you need to check either your browser settings or some weird Linux setting ?

    With the account statistics that your forum user account has then I have a hard time imagining that it is something related to limitations on your user account. On the other hand then being only a Moderator (as opposed to Administrator) then I know almost nothing about the used forum software and my Linux knowledge is also very limited so I wouldn't know if there could possibly be some kind of weird bug in the forum software or same with respect to Linux distributions (the latter I am inclined to rule out unless it is just a settings thing).

    Works fine here.

    What operating system and browser are you using?

    Using Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS and Firefox browser, I just copied your text from the above and inserted it below here.

    "Thanks for your responses. Im on Firefox, Linux."

    Also just wrote this in text editor on Ubuntu and copy-paste it here in browser.

    So , sorry , don't know what your specific problem is. Works just fine here.

    Thanks guys. Never mind I figured it out, it was an about:config setting I had to reset.
