Minor copy-paste bug.

Post by Bugala » Thu Nov 19, 2015 10:54 am

I have encountered same bug twice now.

When i painted some text, and then right clicked mouse and chose "copy", and then used right click again and chose "paste", it just didnt happen.

However, if i then use ctrl-c and ctrl-v, that key combination works fine.

When i restarted hollywood IDE, right clicking worked fine.

I am not sure if I had this problem before installing Hollywood 6, but I do think i encountered it first time already before installing HW6.

Also, these both times have happened in couple of months time, which makes it possible it have came with HW6.


I can live with this problem, as it is minor inconvenience only, but just reporting to let you know about it.

What do you mean by "painted some text"? I don't understand this.

Painted, as meaning, i chose some text.

The thing that happens when you move your mouse over a text, push left mouse button, keep it down while moving it. As you move the mouse, it "paints" the text to show which text is chosen. Then right-click to get the "copy" and "paste" options among others.

edit: hmm.. i think it might be called "marking text" officially.

I'm afraid I can't reproduce this one. It's working fine here...

Seems i wrote bit bad. I cant reproduce that problem either, because it have happened twice seemingly random.

First time i think i had had Hollywood open for days before it happened, second time it happened right when i started Hollywood IDE.

Just reporting so you are aware that there have been issue like that, in case it starts messing something else. Right now it is not a problem as it happens so rare and can be fixed simply by quitting and starting Hollywood IDE again.

Ah, ok. If it happens only sporadically, it's of course very tough to track down and pretty unlikely to be fixed. I need something that can be easily reproduced...
