I have typed a long tale of woe in NOTEPAD.
Am I able to paste this into the pressf1 message box and if so how?

Edit / select all, the right mouse / copy then paste in here

Yep, you certainly can. Highlight then right click > Copy > right click > Paste, et voila. You can do the same from any half decent text editor, even Word ;)

Ctrl A to select all
Ctrl C to copy
Ctrl V to paste

Do we really need to post every different way of doing it?

It's been covered, the second thread with the problem has been made, the problem was short in spite of this thread, and terribly formatted.

Not sure what was to be gained.

Please don't insult the writing of the problems of others. It is not welcome on this forum.

<thread> haha thread started again, please dont close this again as I may come up with more ideas and it's annoying to have to restart the thread each time.

Another idea on how to select:
Select with the mouse by clicking and holding the left mouse button just before the first word, then drag down untill the end.

Just voicing my opinion... not trying to moderate the forum...

LOL, actually, the "CTRL key" method is real handy when there is info you can highlight but has no right-click menu function available.

Well this Moderator says theres no reason to harass others for providing alternative methods.

Ever heard the saying "There's more than one way to skin a cat"?
Its no good having more than one way to skin the cat if nobody knows it right.

Ease up guys, Im shocked at how you can turn something as simple as Copy/Pasting into a discussion of powers on a Forum?

Perhaps I simply dont get out enough to see that this behaviour is simply what the world has come to :-(
