Unable to paste text into new question

I don’t understand why I can’t paste the text I prepared into this box - I shouldn’t have to retype what I already have in Notepad.
[And the required, pre-determined, tags don’t apply.]

Hi @jepollard. You should be able to copy and paste text when creating a post or a reply. Are you using the keyboard shortcut to copy and paste, or are you using the mouse? I’m not able to bring up the option to paste by using the mouse but the keyboard shortcut works for me, so give that a try and let me know if that works.
