past unformatted & inspector field "styled text"

Brian Milby via use-livecode
Hi all,

when I "paste unformatted"*** into the field "styled text"
in the inspector for a field, nothing gets into that namely
field in the end!?

***Via menu or shortcut

As if I did not paste anything!

Can someone please confirm this before I report this as a bug?
Or is this an undocumented feature? 8-)

Thank you!


Best

Klaus

I get whatever I copied into that inspector field. But it retains the formatting of the source.

Yes, from the menu. Works the same as CMD-V.
I get something each way. But it is NOT unformatted, each way.

???
That works here as advertized, no formatted text after using the shortcut or menu!
Problem, the text does not get into the field on the card!

And when I switch back to the "stacled text" tab of the inspector, the pasted text is also gone!?
Too funky!?

Someone else seeing this?

All works for me here.
It is possible you have not placed a blinking cursor into the inspector field?

Klaus.
Now I see what you see. I cannot be sure I did not mess up the procedure earlier because I am getting mixed results. Sometimes the paste is formatted, and sometimes not. . But now when using the menu, if the formatting is indeed plain, nothing appears in the card field.

I can SEE the pasted (unformatted) text in the field, but the text does not make it into
the field on the cqard. When I switch the TABs in the inspector and get back to "styled text"
no text in the field in the inspector.

One minute later...

AHA, looks like I need to hit ENTER to "confirm" my pasting!?
Yep, after hitting ENTER it works as exspected, sheeesh... :-)

Re: past unformatted & inspector field "styled text"

Brian Milby via use-livecode
Yeah that was one of my gripes about the Tree View widget, which is what the property inspector uses now. There are a few other beefs, but one I have is that when you create a new node, it does not SELECT the node you just created so you can name it. You have to CLICK ON IT, because if you don't you can end up killing a node with sub-nodes by typing in a string.

I tried looking into the widget itself to see if I could change it's behavior, but I gave up, partly because I don't do this for a living and don't really have the time or wherewithal to do so, and partly because learning to develop widgets appeared to me to be non-trivial.
