Built on: Linux, 386, Intel C++
Built at: Oct 25 2007, 08:56:17
With Motif: 2.2.3 [@(#)Motif Version 2.2.4]
Running Motif: 2.2 [unknown]
Server: The X.Org Foundation 60802000
Visual: 24-bit TrueColor (ID 0x21, Default)
Locale: en_US.UTF-8

-------------------------
1) No problem copy/paste text in the nedit main window.

2) On some machines can't copy/paste text onto find/replace dialog box (sometimes this is useful). Except this, nedit works fine/

3) It seems that this failure in copying/pasting has something to do with the some libraries or packages not installed in the system.

4) But my question is in nedit what's the difference between copying/pasting texts onto main window and onto a dialog box? Can we make these copying/pasting behavior consistent?

Thx.

    #2 - need a little more detail here on precisely what you did, what the machine/OS was, what happened, and what you expected to happen.

    I can tell you can cut and paste into a dialog box should work, I do it all the time. The dialogs natively support quick paste of the selection (middle mouse) and paste of the clipboard (Shift-Insert or ^V). However, you don't really need it too much because of "Search>Find Selection"

    my system:

    AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 250
    SuSE Linux 9.2 (x86-64)

    ---------------------------------------
    My nedit was statically build and the copying/pasting into dialog box worked fine before an system crash of this machine caused by a disk problem.

    After the bad disk was removed and the operation system (still SuSE Linux 9.2 x86-64) was re-installed I suddenly found the copy/pasting into find/replace dialog didn't work (not matter I used middle mouse or ^C then Shift-Insert or ^V).

    I know the system is different than before (some libraries was not installed, e.g. libXp.so.6), but I wonder why copying/pasting still works in the main window?

    I think I am not the first one find this problem, there was also a bug report in nedit-Bugs-1587902.

    Thx.

    I used xclipboard to check if the selected text was copied to clipboard-it was there.

    OK, so it's in the clipbaord. Does it paste if you use Shift-Insert? Can the text field cut and paste into itself?

    No, if I try to paste the text onto the dialog box, Shift-Insert doesn't work, either. As long as staying in the main window, I can copy and paste without any problem no matter I use ^V or the middle mouse.

    There is no relation between pasting in the main window vs. a Motif text widget. Completely different code - one is inside by Nedit, the other is inside Motif. Can you cut and paste *within* the text widget at all? What happens if you rebuild?

    I believe if I rebuild the executable locally there should be no problem, but I have to ask the system administrator to install all the necessary libraries and packages. This is my problem. I posted all the messages here as I want you development guys to be aware of it - That's all. Thanks for the work done by all the developper to make nedit better and better.

    Thanks you for the very quick response to this post.

    The problem has been fixed by our system administrator. The following is what he said:

    "The problem has something to do with some missing X11 components. I just copied them over from another machine. Not sure exactly what it was, but the rsync of that directory fixed it."

    So it's a local installation problem.
