I am totally unable to paste into the editor (such as here) using Microsoft Edge. When I paste I get a message saying "Please use Ctrl-V/Cmd-V keyboard shortcuts to paste contents" even if I use the Ctrl-V keyboard shortcut.
In other editors I usually can switch to HTML view and paste there but HTML view does not work here.
I can use Microsoft Edge's developer tools to paste but that is a bit cumbersome.
Very interesting. I hadn't heard of this myself but I did find a Microsoft forum post where others have seen similar issues on other sites. The suggestion there was to clear cache and cookies. That seems to only be a temporary work around though.
Has anyone else in the community had success getting Microsoft Edge to copy and paste with keyboard shortcuts? If so, how did you do it?
Note that that forum post (suggesting to clear the cache and such) got just 2 votes.
I need to explain that I am unable to paste into Edge in any way, not just keyboard shortcuts. I said that keyboard shortcuts don't work because the message says to use keyboard shortcuts but not even that works. Everything works using Chrome, I can even use Ctrl-Ins in Chrome to paste.
See Cannot paste text into forums - Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community. It shows the problem but they are using IE11. It is not clear if they had the problem with Edge and I can't see whether they are using Lithium. See Pasting from Edge - Microsoft Power BI Community; that forum is using Lithium and the problem seems to be the same.
I tried going to the Lithium forum and search for "paste" and I got many results for "past". The search capability in the Lithium's own forum is useless.
Apparently Lithium uses TinyMCE. I found Copy/Paste issue in Win 10/Edge · Issue #2505 · tinymce/tinymce · GitHub, in case that helps.
