#40 Paste problems on Windows

In the (sigh) Windows version of Geany built on 12/12/06, if I paste from the clipboard (via press Control-V or the mouse), the cursor is positioned at the start of selected text rather than at the end.

Also, if I select some text and then paste from the clipboard (via press Control-V or the mouse), the selected text remains in the document and appears after the newly pasted text.

Standard behavior (of course) is to delete the selected text and put the pasted text at the resultant insertion point.

    Can you try a newer build? At least the wrong placement of the pasted text should be fixed since r1137 (21/12/06).
    A more recent Windows can be found at http://files.uvena.de/geany/geany-0.10_win32.zip. This is the official 0.10 release.

    Sorry, I mis-typed and flipped 21 to 12. I am using geany-0.10_win32.zip, compiled on December 21, 2006. Also, I am running XP.

    Should I try the SVN version of 1/05/07?

    Unlikely that a more recent SVN version will help. I'll have a look at this soon. Probably the fixed bug in r1137 introduced new ones.

    Both issues should be fixed with SVN r1172. Please give it a try.
    A recent Win32 build can be found at http://files.uvena.de/geany/geany_svn_win32.zip.

    I've been editing with the SVN version you pointed me to for a few days and the pasting is working great.

    Thanks so much -- it's an excellent editor! I use it on several Linux platforms and under Windows when necessary.

    No problem. Thanks for using Geany.
