Problem description: When saving to CSV, I have the option to specify the character set, the field delimiter, and the text delimiter, plus a few other things. I don't have any of these options when copying cells and pasting to plain text (e.g. to PuTTY); it always uses tabs to separate cells. For my application, tabs are forbidden, and I must use spaces. My workaround is to paste to Vim, convert tabs to spaces, then copy and paste again to where I need it.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Copy cells
2. Paste to an application expecting plain text, e.g. PuTTY
3. Cells are separated by tabs, no matter what you may have wanted
Pasting to plain text always separates cells with tabs
Configuration dialog accessible somewhere in menus to change the delimiters in the same manner as when saving to CSV.
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: 22.214.171.124 release
As it exposed, it is not a bug description but an enhancement request.
Please, could you check if you can't do what you want with current new version 4.2 ?
Best regards. JBF
Will download 4.2 momentarily. First let me thank you for changing this to a feature request. I tried to report it as such by using "Help > Send Feedback... > File An Enhancement Request", but it still came up as a bug. Guess we need a meta bug report on that. :^P
Okay, installed. Nope, I can't find any such option. I'm not sure where it would be, but I looked throughout Edit and Tools > Options.
Valid enhancement request I think.
