No paste option!

Not specific to this lesson … I have the ability to highlight and hit “copy” but I have no “paste” option!!! Am I doing something wrong or missing something? Cut/copy/paste isn’t rocket science so I’m probably missing something here…

Your code so far

  .red-text {
    color: red;

  p {
    font-size: 16px;
    font-family: monospace;

<h2 class="red-text">CatPhotoApp</h2>
  <p class="red-text">Click here to view more <a href="#">cat photos</a>.</p>
  <a href="#"><img src="" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back."></a>
    <p>Things cats love:</p>
      <li>cat nip</li>
      <li>laser pointers</li>
    <p>Top 3 things cats hate:</p>
      <li>flea treatment</li>
      <li>other cats</li>
  <form action="/submit-cat-photo">
    <label><input type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor" checked> Indoor</label>
    <label><input type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor"> Outdoor</label><br>
    <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality" checked> Loving</label>
    <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Lazy</label>
    <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Energetic</label><br>
    <input type="text" placeholder="cat photo URL" required>
    <button type="submit">Submit</button>

:thinking: Can you be more explicit? Why are you stuck

HI, When I click to “paste”, not “paste” option is available, all I see is cut and copy…

Just use the keyboard short cut.
Ctrl+c to copy
Ctrl+v to paste

What exactly do you need to copy and paste?

I’m on the CSS lesson where they want me to import a Google font and they said to copy the snippet and paste it to my editing page. I can’t! Funny I had this question when I first started the HTML because I wanted to know if I could move instructions around using cut/paste to change the look of my page.

Ha, thanks for the ctr V idea, that works…guess I’ll just leave the mouse mystery alone and use the keyboard shortcut…


Now I understand you. It seems that the paste option is not available with the mouse.
