Why am I no longer able to paste any copied text into the 'new post' box?

  1. Why am I no longer able to paste a draft post into the 'new post' box? (I can type directly into it but it won't allow me to paste paragraphs that I've copied from my word processor)

    The blog I need help with is 3diassociates.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi there. This is a known issue and they're working on fixing it. For now, pasting using CTRL+V (Windows) or CMD+V (Mac) seems to work for most people, so please try that. You can also use the Paste as Text button on the editor toolbar, but note that will strip all formatting from your text.

    You can also subscribe to the main thread on this issue so you'll be notified of new developments: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/paste-text-broken-visual-editor/page/2?replies=60

    If with 'new post' box you're referring to the post editor on the Reader, also try the post editor at Posts ->Add New in the dashboard.

  3. Thank you so much. CTRL+V worked perfectly. It's good to know that this is a known issue that someone is working on. G

  4. They've been working on this on for a while, so hopefully it won't be too long till it's fixed.
