Issue – Copy and paste in reading lists with IE10

In Internet Explorer 10 (IE10), when you copy and paste content into a reading list using the control-c and control-v keystrokes, existing formatting may be lost, and the list may become a single continuous plain text paragraph.

The Library are working on this urgently, and hope to have it solved very soon.

Two workarounds are to:

  1. Using IE10,  can paste content in using Paste from IE’s Edit menu, or by right-clicking in the target area and selecting Paste from the context menu.
  2. Use a recent version of Chrome and Firefox, which do not exhibit this problem.
