Hi OldUn,

I am Makarand P from the Dell Social Media and Communities team.

With regards to your issue, i feel you might have the html text in word document or notepad and hence not getting the option of html editor. Save the document as .html and then try to select all and then you should get options for html editor. Else pasting the text in html editor software like Dreamweaver should give you options of html editor.

Kindly revert for further clarifications,

Thanks and regards,

Selecting a default application in the options is not the same as using it live.

When you cut as in cut and paste that is a process of the OS not the IE as such. The way to access a secondary menu on a cut and paste would be to have some program installed that inserted that option to the click menu.

I'd install some html editor and use your cut to drag over to paste into the editor.

Google is evil

Thanks chaps,

Looks as if it's going to be a cut & paste jobbie.

Thanks again for your help.
Best regards,
