    The keyboard command (Ctrl+V) for 'paste' does not work in Internet Explorer 11.
    And neither do any of the paste tools from the editor toolbar.

    And the keyboard command Ctrl+X for 'cut' works correctly, but Ctrl+C for 'copy' does nothing. 
    And the Cut/Copy tools in the toolbar don't work either. 

    This is reproducable in the editor demo at

    What's wrong?

    Hi Marja,

    The first time when you tried to use copy or paste in the editor you have received security warning message from the IE, and I could assume that you have declined it, and because of this it is not allowed to use these commands. See the attached screenshot.
    See this page and let us know if you need further assistance.

    Hi Vasil,

    Thanks, that must have been it. I've reset the security options to default now, and it seems to work correctly again.

    Best regards, Marja
