Hi All, I am having an issue where i am trying to copy partial text within a text box and paste it into another text box. It looks like the text doesn't even copy to the clipboard when I select "copy" and hence when I paste there is nothing! My colleague has the same problem. We are using ArchiCAD 22. If we copy and paste text from elsewhere, such as Notepad, it seems to work fine. It only happens when trying to copy from text box to text box within ArchiCAD. Is this a bug? Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks
The same happens to me in text boxes and labels. It is VERY ANNOYING. If I want to copy text within tex box or between different text boxes I have to do it via Word. The issue started in AC24. I have recent update, freshly installed Win10.
As a side note - Archicad's text editor is a decade behind the program itself and very awkward to use - there have been no improvements for ages!
Thank you for the report and I am very sorry about the experience!
In Windows 10, there is a handy feature called Clipboard history. By pressing Windows key + V, a small dialog will open to let you see the history of copied clipboards.
I would like to use this feature for investigation: when you press Ctrl + C (or right-click > Copy), does the text appear in this clipboard history? We need to know at what point the process fails: at copying the text or at pasting the text.
Thank you very much for the report! That's interesting!
I assume the issue only happen inside Archicad? If you copy a piece of text from Archicad to another software, does it work? What happens if you open Edit menu > Copy, does it work this way inside Archicad?
Since the problem seems to be machine-specific, I'm wondering if there might be any other software that could block/alter Ctrl+C hotkey?
