Cutting, copying, and pasting text in browsers with security limits

If you run the Requirements Management (RM) application in certain browsers, you cannot cut, copy, and paste by using the editor menu. If you try to cut, copy, or paste, a security message is displayed.


For security reasons, some browsers limit application access to the operating system clipboard. For example, in Firefox, you might receive this message: Your browser security settings prevent automatic copying. Similarly, in Internet Explorer, you might receive this message: Do you want to allow this web page to access your clipboard?


Use keyboard shortcuts to cut, copy, and paste text. Press Ctrl+X to cut, Ctrl+C to copy, and Ctrl+V to paste. Alternatively, configure your browser to allow application clipboard access.
