Description timbaldwin 2004-09-28 20:21:42 UTC
When the xclipboard program is active, copy/paste of graphics objects or complete slides in the slide sorter does not work. Text can still be copied/pasted when xclipboard is running. As soon as xclipboard is closed, graphics objects and slides can be copied/pasted again. This is true or 1.1.2 and 1.1.3 at least.

@CGU: This one should be closed invalid. The reason that only text is C&P while xclipboard is active is xclipboard itself. It's just designed to handle only text. AFAIK there's no way for applications to work aroud it. Peter

Is there any way to pop up a warning to the user (based on some return code) in this situation that says go close xclipboard if you want to C&P objects? I found myself spinning my wheels for a long time trying to figure out why I could not C&P in Impress when it was something this simple. Anyway, it's not critical but if we can save someone else the headache someday, that would be good.

There was no additional entry for nearly 2 months ... Could this issue be closed by the original reporter? He could always reopen it, if needed ... ;)

By the way same "amazing" effects could be done by using a gnome clipboard manager (I forgot the name because I became so angry), and probably by using other clipboard managers. Copy/paste [oocalc at least] simply breaks and falls apart, and there is no way to see why unless you happen to be lucky or search your ass off. I tried to determine whether it's possible *to make sure* that OOo does not use external copy/paste garbler^Wmanager but there seems to be no way. I am just searching the BTS for a bug of my ACTUAL copy/paste bug, which seems to be inpossible to solve (for now, still looking). Probably OOo uses something to handle copy/paste, and that something screws it up. Defining "something" in this context (or actually being able to make sure that OOo does NOT use any external somethings) would be fantastic. Dunno whether it could be done though.

I think this is a feature and not a bug. xclipboard doesn't work with graphics therefore we should ignore xclipboard when we copy paste graphics. Please have a look.

I can confirm that this issue is still existing, but the bug is definitely in xclipboard and not OOo. When copying images to the clipboard, xclipboard stores it as it were text. In fact the image cannot be pasted in any image application like gimp.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
