I know all about "shift/insert" and the other paste keyboard shortcuts but nothing is faster than right click >> paste.

I am not sure why right click was disabled to begin with but I would love to see it back. It would be much easier to insert tracking numbers into the system if we could actually just paste them into the proper field.

Hi Philip! Thank you for posting this idea. I believe a lot of vendors would agree that being able to right-click and paste would be very helpful. In the meantime, have you tried Ctrl + V? That is another substitute for Shift + Insert, it just poses the potential to duplicate.

I will also pass along your feedback to our Product Management team to determine if this is a possibility to add to the forms. Thanks again!

Throwing in my vote for right-click and paste. I CTRL + V long UPS tracking numbers and BOL numbers, and they double-paste into the field frequently, requiring annoying backspacing to delete. The more I can avoid keyboard shortcuts, the better.

Agreed.  ctrl + v double paste is annoying at best.  RIGHT CLICK!  RIGHT CLICK!  RIGHT CLICK!

I wanted to update the group to let you know that we definitely intend on fixing the copy/paste function in WebForms data entry and I expect the issue will be entering our development cycle within the next month. Hang in there!

Really?  I made this request over 2 years ago.  Does it really take 2 years to implement a change to improve performance?

Hi Philip, I totally understand your frustration/annoyance. You are correct in that the actual development and implementation of this fix does not take two years. Over the last year, we have made significant progress on designing and building our next generation Fulfillment product (which does not require Java!). With that being said, we have had to make very careful decisions in prioritizing bug fixes, new enhancements and development chores in our development cycles in order to ensure we have an optimized balance between WebForms Fulfillment and our next generation Fulfillment product.

Since you mentioned performance, I will also say that overall load times have been high on my radar and I have been working closely with our Development team to ensure we are identifying performance opportunities and deploying incremental enhancements to WebForms fulfillment throughout the year.

Still waiting on this FIX.  It can't come too soon.  The double-paste from Control V is very annoying and it's hard to get in the habit of using shift-insert.  PLEASE FIX!!!

Hi Margaret, I agree that this can't come soon enough! Great news - we have scheduled the fix for this to be released this quarter.

Nothing changes.  I had to spend a small fortune to implement my own custom, in-house EDI solution.  This was simply taking way too long to process orders.  If it ever does get fixed, I'd be happy to come back.
