    Hello Samir,

    This is a limitation of the Mozilla based browsers.

    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.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    I'm using the latest version (2014.2.618.45.)  I understand the limitation for cut/copy/paste in Firefox and Chrome.  But when I click the cut or copy button in Firefox or Chrome, it displays an alert instructing me to use the hot key.  Why does the paste button not do the same? 

    The paste text/paste from word buttons both open a I understand those don't need the alert.  But since the standard paste button doesn't seems like it should display an alert like the cut/copy buttons. 

    Note...this behavior can be duplicated on your editor demo (link is in the post above).

    Hello Ray,

    Thank you for noticing this behavior.

    I can confirm that you are correct and this is not a designed behavior. It is a side effect from a bug fix.

    I logged this issue for further fixing in our database. You can follow this feedback portal item to track updates on the task.

    As appreciation for your report I am updating our Telerik points.

    For the time being you can incorporate the flowing line of code to workaround the problem.
    <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server">
     <script type="text/javascript">
        Telerik.Web.UI.Editor.CommandList["Paste"] = Telerik.Web.UI.Editor.CommandList["Cut"];
