Paste

This command can be used after a previous Cut or Copy operation to place content on the clipboard in the Rich Text Editor’s editable region. You can access the Paste command from the Paste button on the toolbar, by using the shortcut keys Ctrl-V, or right-clicking.

Note: Right-click is only method available to Safari users; RTE icon functionality is not available in Safari.

Note: For security reasons, Chrome and Mozilla-based browsers disallow Paste operations unless you configure the browser to explicitly enable Clipboard access.  See Clipboard Operations or consult your system administrator.  Clipboard behavior is also affected by Rich Text Editor configuration settings.  Consult your CommonSpot Site Administrator.

 

CommonSpot now allows you to preview pasted content, making it easier to work from Word or other text sources.

 

Paste Options

The Paste Option dialog displays when you click the Paste toolbar button or when you use a keyboard shortcut (Control-V for Windows; Command-V for MAC-OS). Use this dialog to define how CommonSpot converts pasted content into HTML code. Paste Options includes a Preview tab to review output before submitting your content.

Some or all of the following options will be available. The specific options are determined by the actual content that is being pasted, as well as the settings defined in the Advanced Textblock Properties dialog (see the Elements Reference), the specific text block instance, and the site-wide settings defined in the CommonSpot Administrator (see the CommonSpot Administrator's Reference for detailed information).

You have these paste option, within the "Insert the contents of the clipboard preserving formatting wherever possible" area.

When the pasted content contains only plain text, the Paste plain option is automatically selected and the Paste Options dialog is not shown.

Note: For security reasons, Mozilla-based browsers disallow Cut and Paste operations unless you configure the browser to explicitly enable Clipboard access through the Clipboard Helper. See this PaperThin Community Site article, review the support information at mozilla.org, or consult your system administrator. Clipboard behavior is also affected by Rich Text Editor configuration settings. Consult your CommonSpot site administrator.
