    Is anybody seeing the "blank context menu issue" in the spreadsheet? The menu contains 4 items (Cut, Copy, Paste and Merge) but they are not visible unless you hover over them

    And the Cut, Copy and Paste commands don't work anyway, they cause a "do not use this function" message. See

    This is happening with the Q3 2016 release in Chrome, Edge and IE 11.

    Hi Mike,

    Let me divide the issues discussed in this forum on two:
    • The "blank context menu" issue is most likely due to some problematic CSS style in your project that is overwriting the default look of the context menu. Please, investigate the problem with the browser developer toolbar inspector and fix it. If you are unable to find the culprit, provide a live URL so that we can help you from our end.
    • The Cut, Copy and Paste issue is a browser limitation that does not allow to execute those commands with client script code. You can allow programmatic browser access to the clipboard in IE11 as shown in this screenshot, but not in Chrome.
