Copy Paste Problems
I have a "copy" and "paste" problem with FamilySearch. I am making list of relatives with PID nos. in Microsoft Word.
In FamilySearch when I hover over a PID, it says, "copy ID" and the then I click on "copy ID," I get a message, "ID copied." This suggests that the text has been copied to clip board. But wait!
The problem is that the PID that is copied only can be pasted inside FamilySearch. If I try to paste what I have copied into Word, there is nothing on my Mac clipboard. This is problem of the copy/paste not working from FS into Word is especially annoying when I think I have copied a PID and then use Command Q (paste to match style), if there is nothing on the clipboard, Command Q will close the Word document.
If I actually copy the PID using Command C and then paste it into Word (or other document) using Command V, the copy/paste function works as it should.
I have had to learn to always use Command C and Command V, and never use the built in feature to copy/paste PID numbers. In other words, I can't trust FamilySearch to deliver what it offers, a copy and paste function that will work with other programs.
It doesn't seem to be a Mac issue because the command C and command V work perfectly.
Can this problem be corrected in FamilySearch, please?
