Description René Ruppert 2013-02-27 02:39:09 UTC
I have noticed that pasting textual content that was copied to the clipboard within XS does not always work. Also the other way round: paste something from (e.g.) TextEdit into XS fails. Sometimes it helps if I type some chars into the target text field in XS, then remove the typed content and then use CMD+V.
I mainly notice this when trying to publish to Testflight: open the dialog within XS and click to get your API ID from testflight. Copy it to the clipboard, go back and try to paste it.
However there is no 100% guarentee for it to fail

I think I found and fixed the issue.
Comment 2 Michael Natterer 2013-03-08 07:18:10 UTC
This has gone under my radar after you saif you fixed it :) What was it?
Comment 3 Mike Krüger 2013-03-08 07:40:35 UTC
I think yes
Comment 4 Michael Natterer 2013-03-08 09:51:09 UTC
Yes, but what was the fix? Do we need to merge it to GTK+ upstream?
Comment 5 Mike Krüger 2013-03-08 10:00:45 UTC
Was fortunately not in the clipboard routines. Was something with the HasFocus flag not working sometimes - or working differently.

Was nothing that's really easy to reproduce - but I got it now.

Ok thanks :)

Today with the latest builds:

MFA 4.6.01073
Mono 2.10.12

This issue does not exists, as now the clipboard does not get stuck, and get updated correctly when copy different text.

Hence, closing this issue.
