newbe help please. paste disabled when i add a menubar in vb2005

P: n/a
i have a simple rtfbox with a couple text boxes, i want to paste some
rtf text into the rtfbox.
I added a rtf box to a blank form and tested that a rtf box handles a
paste automatically. it does.
once i add a menu bar the rtfbox no longer accepts pasted text.
it took me a bit to fgure this out. now i want to find out why and how
to fix it. i would like to add a menubar.

I could not replicate this issue.

After I added a MenuStrip I could still paste into the RTB.

Or are you really trying to add a MenuBar from a previous version of .NET?

Hello Mike,

Also, is paste disabled only from the keyboard shortcut (ctl-v), or from
the context menu as well. If only the keyboard, then perhaps you are defining
a menu item with a ctl-v shortcut??
(I believe if you tel the menu bar to 'add default items' this includes an
edit menu).

ok i had a menu strip. i also had added the standard items. i took a
look (i made a copy of the project before i deleted the strip). so
Ctrl-v was listed in the prop sheet as a shortcut key to the paste
item. I'm a little confused with the menu bar.
