IE Enhanced Security Configuration – found in server editions of windows, limits the copy-paste feature inside the application to TEXT only. Images or text formatting will be lost.


ReqEdit uses internal Internet Explorer control built-in into Windows, for displaying and editing contents of ReqIF files. As Internet Explorer is no longer supported by MS it is restricted more and more.

How to enable full copy-paste?

IE Enhanced Security Configuration needs to be turned OFF for users and/or admins, please see attached image. After configuration, users have to log off then sign in again.
