Description René Ruppert 2013-04-04 07:37:04 UTC
XS 4.0.3

Go to Safari, copy a piece of text (CMD-C) and try to paste in XS on the Mac (CMD-V). Nothing pasted.
Open Textedit, paster there, switch the format to "Text only", copy again, paster in XS --> text gets pasted.

Works for me:


Do you've any application installed that does something with the clipboard ?


Google Toolbar
Keyboard Maestro

I think they got fixed, but maybe we've a regression.

No, nothing. It seems to be pretty random. Today I can paste just fine, also from Safari.
Comment 3 Mike Krüger 2013-04-05 03:57:04 UTC
I've reworked the cut & paste routines pretty heavily last week - chances are high that it works now.

I'll close this bug & I try to look out for issues there. (4.0.4 will contain the new cut & paste routines)
Comment 4 René Ruppert 2013-04-23 04:06:49 UTC
Still does not work with 4.0.4. I'm even unable to paste the XS system information here. I enter XS -> About and hit the "Copy Information" button and try to paste here: nothing.
Then I quit XS and restart it and now I can paste but after a while, something will kill the copy&past functionality again.

Unfortunately 4.0.4 was a hotfix release due to changes in Xcode 4.6.2 so didn't include this fix. The fix should be in 4.0.5.
