How can I Cut/Copy/Paste my content?

If you are using Firefox as your browser for editing and get an error when trying to "paste" text into the WYSIWYG editor, you have a few choices to correct that error. The right-click "paste" option and the paste button paste button will not work in the standard configuration of Firefox.

Option1: use short-cut keys [ideal]

In place of using right-click and WYSIWYG buttons, you will need to cut, copy, and paste with the operating system commands (also known as short-cut or quick keys). Here are the commands:

 PC's control key + PC's letter x key = cut

 PC's control key + PC's letter c key = copy

 PC's control keyalign= + PC's letter v key = paste

Option 2: Make configuration change on your C drive

Download this document (user.js) and skip to #3 below or follow beginning with step 1: 

1. Open Notepad or any other text editing resource

2. Create a new file and place only the following lines of code into it:

user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "allowclipboard");
user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.sites", " http://clemson.edu");
user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.Clipboard.cutcopy", "allAccess");
user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.Clipboard.paste", "allAccess"); 

3. Save this file as user.js and place it in the following directory:

C:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[AlphaNumString].default

Note: this is a Windows XP example. If you are using a different operating system, please see the “Locate your Profile” section on the following Mozilla web site: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Profiles#How_to_find_your_profile
This will help you to identify the proper path in which to store “user.js”

4. Restart Firefox

You should now be able to copy and paste into Cascade's WYSIWYG editor when using Firefox.

Option 3: Use this Firefox "add-on"

Add-ons extend Firefox, letting you personalize your browsing experience.
