Re: Copying online text

Have you checked your settings to make sure you’re copying from the virtual cursor and bit on screen highlight?
 
This setting keeps getting shut off on me sometimes and I have to switch it back.
 
I just haven’t bothered calling FS about it since it’s a minor thing for me.
 
Open up a webpage, then press insert+V.  In the search field type copy and arrow down to select and copy from virtual cursor, though in your case it may say select and copy from on-screen highlight.
 
To change the setting, press your spacebar.  It cycles through the two settings.
 
Good luck.

Maybe, if the placemarker method does not work, you can save the page as text if it will let you then do it.

 

Then, copy and paste your material.

The way that usually works for me is to place a temporary place mark with windows control K and arrow to the end of the text and do insert + space and then press the letter M.

That selects it, and then you can copy it.

Note, you can put the mark at the end arrow to the beginning to, the main thing is that your cursor is at one end and the place mark is at the other.

I have done this when finding the spot again would be a pain, and I'm already at the end and it would be easier to backtrack to the beginning after leaving the marker.

Until recently I could almost always select a piece of text on the web and paste it into a document but recently this isn’t always the case, for example, I wanted to paste the details of a book I am reading into an e-mail to share with a friend but Amazon wouldn’t let me do this.

Is there a work-around?
