#385 Copy/Paste is not working


I seem to be having an odd bug with OpenSong. For some reason, the copy/paste function no longer works in the program. I thought perhaps this was a Windows services issue, but all the necessary services are enabled and started, and copy/paste works in other programs, but not in OpenSong.

    Interesting, is this the latest beta version your using?
    Are you seeing this issue on all edit fields? (Lyrics, title, etc.)
    Which version of Windows are you running?

    I used thru last years all versions of OpenSong from 0.9.8 to the last Beta and never I have this problem.
    In last two Beta versions was created more like 100 lyrics and in 99% was used Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V for Copy from MS Word to OpenSong and for corrections of Lyrics, Autor name, Copyright, Song name, Hymn number, Presentation. Versions of OS: Windows XP SP3 32bit and Windows 7 64bit. Some time also in Ubuntu.

    In addition to the information Joshua asked for, are you using keyboard shortcuts or the right-click menu? If you are using the keyboard, what is your language? Does Windows use the same Control-X for cut, Control-C for copy, and Control-V for paste that English uses? In reviewing the code, we don't change the shortcut keys when the language changes and OpenSong expects the English shortcuts. This may be creating confusion for our non-English-speaking users.
