Can't copy from message composing window to Word for spell check
I used to copy text from the composing to Word, spell check it and then paste back into the composing window before posting. It also saved me frustration should a log-in time out or something else prevent me from completing the post.
Now I can select text, but copy is not one the options offered to me for the selected text.
I can copy from the "Preview Window", but then it is something of a hassle to get the old text out of the way to paste the corrected text back.
I suppose I could always just compose in Word then copy and paste into a virgin composing window.
Any suggestions? Or is there perhaps a spell checker than I have not found?
