I am using Memsource for a new client, and I cannot copy and paste text into/from the text editor. I am referring to simple copy/paste functions as used in Word. If I select and right click a word or words in the text editor, there is no "copy" option. The same is true if I try to paste in text from another source.
Is it possible that such a basic function doesn't exist in this tool? The Help guides are of no use up to now.

Any help here?

Thank you.

Yes, it's weird. There is no usual copy or paste options on the right-click menu in Memsource online editor (in fact, none of the available options appear to have anything to do with text editing):

You're just going to have to use Ctrl+C (copy), Ctrl+X (cut) and Ctrl+V (paste). The shortcuts Shift+Delete (cut) and Shift+Insert (paste) also seem to work.

Does Ctrl+C and then Ctrl+V work for you? How about Ctrl+X and then Ctrl+V? Or, how about Shift+Delete and then Shift+Insert? Do these standard shortcuts work for you when you select text to copy/cut and/or when you want to paste text?


Thank you! That worked perfectly. Now I just have to change my old school habits and remember the shortcuts! I really appreciate it. Many thanks

Works fine (offline editor) Nov 13, 2019

I always use Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V, as these shortcuts are universal (Windows). They work fine in Memsource.

Here is what I see if I right-click:

This is from the offline editor. I don't use the online version.
