Cut/paste in reply or comment

I am on 3.82 and when some users cut/paste into a reply or comment the
history show lots of special characters

I cannot replicate this even when I try what they said they did.

Any ideas? I ignored the first ticket as oper error but I have gotten
a few more and from some folks who are good technically

Thanks for any help you can give

Now, interesting copy/paste issues I’ve seen have been with newer MS
products (office & things). When you cut/copy text from something like
MS Outlook, it copies as HTML formatted text. When you paste that into
RT, you can’t tell immediately that it’s HTML because RT is web-based
and handles it just fine… shows you only the text that you think you
copied. However, ALL of this goes into the database and if you have the
default 12k inline character limit setup… RT will complain that it’s
not raw text, because it truncates it somewhere in the middle of the
HTML formatting and becomes confused about the nature of the content.

You can see in plain text exactly what was posted by clicking the
"Download" link in the history…

Can you give more information regarding how the user was copy/paste’ing?
What kind of data? From which software?..

NO. Here is what I got.

The weird characters seem to come up when I copy and paste the previous email response.

This sounds like a bug that was fixed in 3.8.4 with IE, the RichText
editor and large blocks of copied text. There are a bunch of other IE
bugs in those releases too.
