  • Cannot Copy and Paste text, graphics anymore

    Since yesterday morning I have been trying to copy and paste graphics within SBM.....as well as C&P text in the message field. It will copy for me...but paste is not highlighted...and when I do ctrl V...nothing happens.

    I can C and P in any other program on my computer...but not in SBM. Is there something that I may have disabled in SBM?

      Hi there!

      Can you explain what you mean by the message field? (Do you mean journal text?) Can you clarify - if you right-click, you can choose Copy from the dropdown menu, but then you cannot access Paste when you right-click somewhere else on the page?

      Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software to see if that helps?

        Hi Karin =)

        When I am clicking on copy, then paste for anything...text, graphics...you name it...the paste will not work.
        In the edit column the word paste is even grayed out.

        It isn't my computer as I can C and P in any program...just not SBM. This started on Monday morning.

          I have not un-istalled/re-installed as I no longer have the backup copy. I would need to re-purchase.

          My biggest fear is losing all my projects in the process.
          I have well over 300....2 years worth of work =)

            Hello!

            A few things to try:

            - make sure that the item you are trying to copy is selected (When you right-click on it, make sure that you see a box around it)
            - is it possible your Ctrl key isn't working? You can also select the object, then choose Edit> Copy from the menu. You can then choose Edit> Paste.
            - it it possible that you have no extra memory available? This could cause a problem like being unable to paste copied information.

            Please let me know!

            Karin

              Hi Karin....Gracie sent me a new download so I am going to try this.
              It was the program, as everything on my computer is working fine.

              Will let you know if this works =)

                  I had the same a few days ago...it was the folder my scrap stuff was in...I moved them to another folder and they where working again. Hope this solves your problem.

                    Thanks!

                    Thanks, Wendy! I switched my embies and backgrounds to another folder. That didn't help, but it got me thinking. I opened up the properties of SBM and changed to "Run as Administrator". THAT did it! Thanks for the idea!
