Paste text directly into field, through pop window.

When I paste text into an HTML Editor field, I get a pop up window with a message:

Because of your browswer security settings, the editor is not able to access
your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again...

How can I set the field to paste directly into the field, without the pop up window

The Browser security settings are preventing content from pated directly, you would need to edit the browser security settings to allow this.

this is a Javascript issue where most browsers, for security reasons, prevent direct access to the clip board.

Either you need to past into the secondary pop up window, or disable the security settings in the browser. For different browsers, the settings to be adjusted will be different, all browsers implement the security settings differently.
