don't think my last thread got posted. Here it is again.

Can't use copy/paste on any page (including new) . Can use copy, but paste doesn't work - anywhere. What to do to fix it?

does the right click menu not work?

what if you use keys

ctrl + C (copy)
ctrl + V (paste)

nothing - no cut, copy, paste - all grayed out. All my other programs working fine.

In DW I've looked at preferences - the copy/paste there seems to be only for text from other programs - don't know where else to troubleshoot

And grey even when you select an element or highlight text

dodgy install possibly

and you can confirm that ctrl+c and ctrl+v does not work?

yes.

my technical support person is not happy about doing a reinstalation. Are there any tests we can run before going that route?

????

you have a technical support person for installing software?

thats bling. Is that like a an ebutler?

ask him whats the problem with taking a disk out of a box and clicking install when it appears?

cant you just do this yourself and sack the butler

So guess you're saying it's a definite reinstallation? no testing?

you cant switch cut and paste functionality on and off

if you have tried running dreamweaver a couple of times with no luck and also tested cut and paste in other apps like word and note pad then it must be the application

pop the disk in the drive and see if it gives you a repair option before you uninstall it

Yea, I'm back in business (hopefully I'll stay that way). We had to totally uninstall the program and reinstall it. What would I do without your advice?
