Resolved: Product key pasting from Entourage mail (Mac)

Postby droolmaster0 » Wed Jan 16, 2008 2:16 am

This is probably dumb, but I am unable to paste the inordinately long product key into the appropriate field. I have failed to type it correctly a couple of times now, and this is rather frustrating. It's obviously supposed to work - I see in the instructions that pasting it in is suggested (obviously)....so, what am I missing?

(I give up. I'm not going to spend all evening trying to get this typed in correctly. I checked the characters and they looked ok, but it ain't working. And when you check it, it wipes them all out)

Failed again. Maybe my typing skills are deteriorating with age. What's with the paste function not working?

Mac

To paste on the Mac, you must:
- Right-click in the text box, OR Control-click in the text box
... then select "Paste" from the pop-up menu
- Alternatively, click in the text box, and press Cmd-V (for paste).

Windows
To paste on Windows, you must :
- Right click in the text box
... then select "Paste" from the pop-up menu
- Alternatively, click in the text box, and press Control-V (for paste).

Hoping this helps!

Right, the problem was caused by Entourage mail (for Mac) doing something weird to the text that was copied to the clipboard!

The solution was simply to:
- run TextEdit (you'll find TextEdit using Finder in the Applications folder)
- copy the values from Entourage
- paste the values into TextEdit
- copy each value you need from TextEdit
- paste into noatikl...!

Hoping this helps!

had exactly the same problem with mixtikl, using MacBook, Snow Leopard.
Copying and pasting into Text Edit and then to Mixtikl product key window did not work.
