Copy and paste does not work with shortcut STRG+C / STRG+V / STRG+X
Comment 1 Robert Großkopf 2014-09-19 18:38:26 UTC
Could you please describe  a little bit more? What do you want to copy and paste? I mark, for example, a query, press Ctrl+C and then press Ctrl+V - works as expected.

Copy and paste does not work with shortcut STRG+C / STRG+V / STRG+X: That means if I want to copy the content of a cell I have to use the mouse (right click - copy, then go to the empty cell, again right click - paste). I can't do the same procedure with shortcuts Ctrl+C etc.
The same problem exists if you want to copy a row or anything inside of a table.

@Stefan: please explain step by step what it is you  are trying to do. Saying copy/paste in a cell doesn't work doesn't help us very much.

Which cells do you mean ?
- cells in the table grid when defining a table ?
- cells in table grid of Table data edit mode ?
- cells in the Query Designer ?
- cells in the DataSourceBrowser ?
- cells in a Table Control in a Form ?

As you can see, there are multiple possibilities, we need to know which one doesn't work for you.

Setting to NEEDINFO. Please set back to UNCONFIRMED once you have provided that information.
