Is anyone else having a problem adding a "copy & paste" to a G2G comment?

Just trying to answer someone and add a link to a project page, but can't seem to get it to work. Is this just my mouse/computer? Or has there been a change on G2G?

Here is the post announcing the recent update to the G2G software:

If you use a keyboard, you will want to learn the shortcuts:

copy = Ctrl+c

paste = Ctrl+v

Your browser may also have some shortcut links built into it.

Portable devices are still a problem, I don't know if they have any shortcuts. Other WikiTreers will have to advise you (and other portable device users) on their functionality.

Post back if you need additional help, Dave - and anyone else!

That works!

One of the keyboards I have owned was retired when the C key wore out - it just fell off one day.
I have noticed an issue with control c and control v for copy and paste where the frame is hard to scroll. If I go to a line and add a space then delete it, the issue goes away. And now I can scroll up and down the profile again. This is on an iPad.

Those of us, that use an Android tablet, lost the ability to paste in this comment box with the upgrade.  Are you using a tablet or is the problem affecting other computer types?
