Hi Camille,

That's a good point that I've never noticed before! If you try to copy and paste using a mouse it doesn't work as you'd expect. But if you use keyboard commands (ctrl + c - for copy, and ctrl + v - for paste) it works normally.

Thanks..that works! It would suck to have to always type out a url

Is there a reason why we can't copy and paste with the mouse?

Thanks Justin, I also encountered this problem, now using the keyboard for that purpose.
