    Ignore my previous answer. You can copy and paste without going to HTML editor. Use the advanced tool bar. It has a text paste option. Also, see this thread:

    [bluemoon:One quick question while we are on this topic … is it only me that cannot cut and paste while using this editor? I have to go into html editor to do that.]

    Hit Ctrl+v to copy/paste too.

    PLus info
    That would only work if you are using IE
    And 70% of ppl now switched to firefox
    and if u Alt-B on firefox it will only go for the Bookmark menu
    (which made me clueless for the first 3 minutes)
    then later the 6th sense tell me that u guys must still be using the IE

    and voila…

    Control V works! Thank you.

    @ampin: I have Firefox too. The first time I hit alt+B it did go to bookmarks, but somehow miraculously works now.

    :) Yes I use Ctrl+v to paste in Fx too.
    Alt+b brings up the advanced toolbar in the
    visual rich editor as well.
    Shrug. lol

    Yes ampin I sure can. But… it does disappear sometimes, in the middle of drafting a post.
    So I just have to alt+b again to make it show.
    Who knows what the deal is. Computers can be full of surprizes.

    ampin: click inside the Rich Text Editor before you hit Alt-B in Firefox.

    I use Firefox exclusively, and I’ve had no prob with Alt-B.

    Just did some testing, the issue is definitely that the Rich Text Editor hasn’t taken control of the keyboard input yet because you haven’t clicked/typed anything in it yet.

    OK Rich txt editing is on, and I have tried both ie, and firefox, and the most I get is bolded type, no extra selections for formating or spell check. Are you folks running beta’s of wordpress? I am using 2.0.4

    Are you people using a special toolbar or anything like that, maybe I dont have something installed that others do. Just a thought.

    michaelbb: we’re using WordPress Multi-user at wordpress.com, not WordPress self-hosted.

    one difference I’ve noticed between Rich Text Editor and regular editor. Rich Text Editor will strip out the BGCOLOR tags on tables, but regular will leave them in.

    Note that Ctrl V doesn’t always work in IE. For no reason I can determine, sometimes it simply refuses to paste it in, acting as if nothing’s happened. You then need to right-click and paste, which causes the whole post to judder horribly and then bounce you back to the beginning. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn’t.

    Rain, I always click within teh editor box before doing a CTRL-V. That way, it’s highlighted.

    Hope this helps,
