Authoring in ChromeThe new version of the CMS allows you to author with more browsers than ever before!  Browser support has been added for both Chrome and Safari.  Supported browsers and versions include:

  • Internet Explorer 8 and 9 (Windows)
  • Firefox 10 ESR version (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X)
  • Chrome 14 (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X) (*Limited Copy, Cut, Paste)
  • Safari 5 (Mac OS X) (*Limited Copy, Cut, Paste)

*For security reasons, both Mozilla-based browsers and Chrome disallow cut, copy, and paste operations unless you first configure the browser to explicitly grant access to the clipboard.  You can easily install add-ins to support clipboard functions in both browsers.


Users are automatically prompted to download and install on the PaperThin helper on first use, and clipboard functions are active after browser restart. To avoid the interruption this may cause, contributors using Chrome should create a sample instance of cut-and-paste in the Rich Text Editor  to invoke the download in advance of using the clipboard for actual content creation and modification.


To allow the Rich Text Editor access to the clipboard view the Knowledge Base article on enabling cut and paste in Firefox.


Since Safari allows cut, copy and paste through right-click only, these functions (as well as the standard keyboard shortcuts of Command/CTRL-C, Command/CTRL-V, etc.) are not available from the Rich Text Editor toolbar for Safari users.
