Safari - Unable to paste from Word into OWA


Safari users are unable to copy and paste non-text elements (e.g. tables) from Microsoft Word into the Outlook Web App (OWA). Elements converted into plain text will paste into Safari as normal. This does not appear to affect other web browsers (e.g. Chrome or Mozilla Firefox).


Microsoft has opened a support ticket for this issue. ITS will provide more information when Microsoft offers a solution.


It is recommended that those experiencing this problem use a different web browser (e.g. Chrome or Mozilla Firefox).
