[CLOSED]can't copy paste from WF8 browser to notepad
I working in WF Rel. 8009, Gen. 10202014 and MS Internet Explorer 11.0.

For example, if I use ?FF CAR to show the fields
in the file, then I use the mouse/cntrl keys to copy the text from the browser display.

When I try to paste into a focexec or Notepad it does not allow it. I just see a blank page.

Has anyone had this problem? is there a changeable setting to fix this?

Can you choose an external browser in 8009 ?

In 8104 we can choose IE or Chrome (with issues) or firefox as the browser.

Had not problems copying from these.

I thought the same like Harry but Tom has tried that option already as per his previous post. Are you facing this problem from WebFOCUS Content tree(not DS or AS)?
