Pasting in Chrome and Safari

Share

As you may know, the new version of CommonSpot now supports authoring in Safari and Chrome.  But pasting into a Text-block element in these browsers is a little different than what you are used to.

Safari

To paste in Safari, you have to right-click and pick paste from the popup submenu or you can use the appropriate keyboard shortcut.

Chrome

To paste in Chrome, you first have to download a Chrome extension.

  1. Go to http://author.ecu.edu/commonspot/dhtmledit/paperthin_chrome_extension.crx and save the extension to your desktop.
  2. When the download is finshed, drag the file to Chrome to install it.  A warning will appear in the bottom left of the window.  Click “Continue”.
     
  3. Click Add when the next window appears.
     
  4. A confirmation that the installation succeeded will appear.
     

After you have installed the plugin, you will be able to paste with Chrome.  To do this, you have to use the paste button that is on the RTE toolbar (Control + V and the right click context menu do not work in Chrome).
