FLS 5.1.6 - a new clipboard bug

Discussion started on FontLab Studio 5

First, thanks for the FontLab update. Although the clipboard bug has been largely fixed, I notice that copy and paste no longer works in the opentype panel.

Did that work in 5.1.5?

Although we do try to track bug reports in the forums,
a much more reliable route is to use our bug report
form at support.fontlab.com

Yuri is taking a look at it.
I *think* it worked in 5.1.5.

It definitely worked in previous versions.

Vice-president, FontLab
actually you can copy from the feature text, it is paste that is not working.

Yuri, can you paste that copied text into a text editor, then copy it from there and paste back into Fontlab window?  It may not be copy, it just may be paste.

Vice-president, FontLab
in any case, we decided to fix this little but annoying problem, please wait for announcements.

If I copy and paste a feature definition into the OT panel, the last semicolon and the [CR] after it get lost. Is that the bug we're talking about?

No — that bug was introduced when they fixed the earlier bug which prevented pasting at all. I never bothered to report it since it is comparatively minor.

There's still a bug when copying and pasting in the OpenType panel. :-[

If you copy and paste a complete feature, the last semicolon and CR get dropped.

If you copy and paste a single line, the last character in the line and the semicolon get dropped.

Just sayin'...

But thanks for the fixes. FontLab is back on my Christmas card list.
