    I'm experiencing different results when clicking on the Cut, Copy, Paste, or Paste From buttons in the Editor toolbar depending on what browser I use.  The issues can be reproduced using Telerik's default demo for the RadEditor (http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/default/defaultcs.aspx)

    Here are the results...
    * Firefox (v3.6.8)- a pop-up message indicates to use the keyboard shortcuts for Cut, Copy, Paste, and Paste From buttons. 
    * IE (v8.0.6001.18702) - all the buttons work as expected, no pop-up indicating to use keyboard shortcuts.
    * Safari (v4.0.5) - the Cut and Copy work as expected, but the pop-up message is received when clicking the Paste or Paste From buttons.
    * Google Chrome (v5.0.375.126) - the Cut and Copy work as expected, but the pop-up message is received when clicking the Paste or Paste From buttons

    Anyone know why the button behavior varies between the different browsers?
    Thanks!

    Hello Amy,

    Please, note that to protect users' private information, unprivileged scripts cannot invoke the Cut, Copy, and Paste commands in the Mozilla, Safari / Chrome and Opera rich text editor, so the corresponding buttons will not work. You can cut and paste content in Firefox, Safari /chrome and Opera only using the Ctrl+X and Ctrl+V shortcut or the Paste from Word dialog.
    You can also paste content from the browsers menu: Edit -> Paste.
    More information is available in this help article: Cleaning Word Formatting.

    The Cut, Copy and Paste commands could be executed by JavaScript code only under Internet Explorer.
