Description

PART 1, wording of dialog intro text

The issue with browser pasting is a thorny one. I think it would help a bit to tweak the dialogue text to be more concise/accurate.

Before: "Because of your browser security settings, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again in this window. Please paste inside the following box using the keyboard (Ctrl/Cmd+V) and hit OK"

After (Windows/Linux): "Because of browser security, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. Paste in the box below using the keyboard (Ctrl+V) and hit OK"

After (Mac): "Because of browser security, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. Paste in the box below using the keyboard (Cmd+V) and hit OK"

I've done 3 things here: 1) Removed reference to 'security settings' as only Firefox ever had such a setting, and it is since removed. It really confuses users, who then look for the settings. 2) Shortened the sentences as much as possible for conciseness, made it fit on fewer lines. 3) Tailored for Windows/Mac. We don't want to get techie giving multiple keypresses to try, and confusing Windows users (what's Cmd?) when this is such a core dialog.

PART 2, make function of paste from Word clearer

Can we make the dialog title for Paste from Word as "Paste from Word (automated cleanup)". Just so that it makes it clear why this is a separate button, as it will confuse users.

I'm ok for "PART 1", while the proposal for "PART 2" doesn't seem to solve anything. Actually it adds yet another thing for the user to try to understand.

I also agree that current message about "your browser settings" may be confusing. It is indeed better to write that browsers don't allow it. Good catch.
