Pasting text

Postby Thomas Lohrum » Sun Jul 30, 2017 8:00 pm

Hi Alex,

i think with 3.8 the pasting behaviour changed. Or maybe the shortcut got switched. Seems like i now have to press Ctrl+Alt+V instead of just pressing Ctrl+V to paste text to a list. What is the benefit of this? Is it configurable?

Most probably a side effect of supporting pasting of HTML. However I can paste into a list, so will need a more specific example from you.

Hi Alex,

the problem is that when copying a list and pasting it to another note's list, the original list gets transformed to a single item.

Example

Source
  • line 1
    sub1
  • line 2
    sub2
  • line 3
    sub3


Pasted
  • line 1
    sub1
    line 2
    sub2
    line 3
    sub3

1) What do you have selected in Options/Clipping/Formatting?
2) How exactly do you copy and how exactly do you paste?
Thanks!

Both options are enabled.

By pressing Ctrl+V. When i press Ctrl+Alt+V it's ok. My point is, that the default behaviour seems to have switched. I like it the other way.

I get completely different result!
Here's what I do:

1) Create a new note
2) Make a bullet list

Code: Select all

     * line1
       sub1
     * line2
       sub2
     * line3
       sub3
 

3) Press enter 3 times
4) Make another bullet list

Code: Select all

     * line4
     * line5


5) Select from before line1 through end of sub3 and press Ctrl+C
6) Please cursor at the end of line4 and press Ctrl+V
7) Here's what I get:

Code: Select all

   * line4
   * line1
   *   sub1
   * line2
   *   sub2
   * line3
   *   sub3
   * line5

Wait a sec, that was with RTF formatting retaining off. With RTF on, I get better result:

Code: Select all

* line4
* line1
  sub1
* line2
  sub2
* line3
  sub3
* line5
