  • 1.  Cannot edit Long String fields when editing project properties in IE11

    Hi, we are having this unusual situation with users browse via Internet Explorer 11.

    They can fill in almost all fields, but cannot edit the custom long string fields.

     

    What they CAN do:

    - Edit the "Project Name" field

    - Edit string fields (ex: Status Comment)

    - Edit numeric fields

    - Edit date fields

    - Partially edit Long String fields: They can delete characters.

     

    We they CANNOT do:

    - Fill in Long String fields. They cannot add characters or words.

     

     

    This happens only with IE11.

    With Chrome (and earler versions of IE) works fine.

     

    The exact version is:

     

    According to Clarity documentation, IE11 is certified (see image).

    What could the users be missing? Have this happened to your users?

    I believe full native support for IE11 wasn't implemented till 14.3. (Prior to that it would force it into a compability mode)

    The short answer is that your IE11 users will need to be in a compatibility mode i.e. use enterprise mode
