Can't Seem to Paste to the Adventure Log

DantePD

Okay, so I've got a nice epilogue written to my game's first story arc and....I can't seem to copy/paste it into an Adventure Log.

 

When I attempt to paste it, I get a small pop up box saying that I can't paste to the log directly due to my browser's security settings (Without telling me exactly what it needs to allow for pasting) and to paste it there. I do that, click "OK" and the pasted text just goes into the void. It doesn't show up anywhere.

 

I've tried this in Chrome, Firefox and Safari now and I can't figure out what's going on and how to fix it. And I'll be damned before I retype these nine pages into the browser window

    I'm a Firefox guy, so that's the one I know the best, but I assume they're all reasonably similar. In Firefox, check out Tools -> Options -> Privacy & Security. If you can't get it to work out after examining the settings there, feel free to open a ticket and I'll look into it.

    Are you using mouse right-click paste? Try Crtl+V(Cmd+V for Mac) and see if that helps. Or maybe smaller chunks.

    Also are you using the ckeditor or the older textile editor. Try switching editors(under settings -> advanced) and see if the older one plays better with pasting. Most of us don't like(politely) the ckeditor.

    So in the mean time, I've noticed the is a paste button in the ckeditor buttons area and this brings up a box into which you can add your text into. It's the clipboard with a filled out piece of paper in front of it.

    Don't know if it'd take 9 pages worth though. That's a whole lot of goodness.

    I know that I use the Textile editor myself and have a template for my adventure log posts that I use. I type up the post in notepad, using that template and then copy and paste it into the adventure log. I just posted to my log last week on Thursday. I'm on a PC, using Firefox so if you are using the ckeditor, I also suggest you switch editors and try it again!

    Okay so I have only seen answers for Firefox but I can tell you right now that I am not downloading a whole different browser just to make an adventure log. Are there any solutions for Chrome because I haven't found any settings that can help with this,

    @RosietheRoo, did you try textile editor over CKEditor? That doesn't require a different browser.

    So finally got it to paste by Copy+Paste into the actual box not the pop up box the problem is that it bolded everything and to unbold you have to unbold and replace every first word in every paragraph. Now got everything unbolded by replacing every first word but now there is an invisible <meta /> that doesn't show up in the edit and I can't get rid of it. This site isn't very user friendly which is sad because the concept is brilliant.

    @Kallak if only textile were the default editor...

    @RosietheRoo, changing the editor from CkEditor to Textile should solve most of your problems. CkEditor is VERY not-user-friendly, but the Textile editor actually works very well. Like Kallak said above, that should help tremendously.

    Go to Settings -> Advanced -> change Markup Parser from CkEditor to Textile.
