A colleague and I, both working on Windows 7 but on different machines, when we copy text from other applications (web page, Word, Notepad+, etc.) cannot paste into TXS. There's no error message, it's just that nothing happens. We're quite sure that this used to work but without making changes or updating it just stopped. I've not found anything about this through searching the web. Any ideas?
Not reproducible here. Please give some further details:
I can paste into all other applications.
If I have two files open in TXS I can copy from one file to the other.
It's 2.6.6 on 64-bit Windows 7.
That's strange. I have no real idea what the cause could be.
The only thing you could try is to use the USB-Version. It doesn't need an installation, so you can test the same executable on different PCs. That way you could find out, if it's really an issue in something in TXS itself or also with your system.
I agree that it's very strange indeed. Remember that it's not just me -- my colleague on another 64-bit Windows 7 machine has the same problem, and both of us used to be able to paste. Given our immediate needs, I don't think I can try any more tests and will just live with the problem, reading files into TexStudio when possible. Thanks for trying to reproduce the problem. I had hoped to find that others had seen the problem and knew how to fix it.....
I am experiencing this same issue. I'm using version 2.9.4 on windows 8.1. Copy and paste within texstudio works, but not when trying to copy something from outside the program. I can drag text in, but not paste it.
I realize this is an old thread, but any ideas?
