Can't copy text to clipboard using keyboard shortcut
Under both Windows 98 and NT 4 SP 4, selecting and then copying text (using both Ctrl-C and selecting Copy from the Edit menu) does not appear to work - if I launch Notepad and press Ctrl-V, nothing happens. Nothing appears in the ClipBook Viewer, either.
I don't think this is implemented yet, don?
This was (I believe) working at some point in the past. This was found when trying to regress a bug that had to do with HTML tags being inserted into text copied to the clipboard...
Clearing Milestone for don to re-set.
Re-assigned to email@example.com. Peter, Rod is working on this, right?
Assignee: trudelle → rods
Priority: P3 → P2
Target Milestone: M4
RodS owns the new code, which is where this should start working (i.e, not worth fixing in the old implementation) reassigning to rods as p2 for m4
I own the Windows implementation and the entire infrastructure. I don't own getting it to work in the Browser. But I have no problem taking on this task. It shouldn't take much and I have the best understanding of it.
The copy menu works, but keybindings for menus are not yet implemented. I am reassigning this to Dagley who own keybindings.
saari ran into a brick wall trying to hook the keybind code up to menu commands on Windows which is going to necessitate rework on all platforms, both by xptookit and joki, so this is being deferred to M5
cpratt, is this Win32 only? What are results with Mac and Linux?
This would be masked by bug 4167 (copy doesn't work in browser only) because of a frameset problem. Is the bug we're talking about that cmd-c, cmd-v don't work, or that using the menus doesn't' work? Both are totally separate issues and should be separated.
Summary: Can't copy text to clipboard → Can't copy text to clipboard using keyboard shortcut
Windows: Copy: The menu item is working. Ctrl-C is not. (Changed this bug's description to reflect that.) Paste: The menu item is not working. Ctrl-V is. (Opening new bug for that.) Linux: Copy: Neither the middle mouse button, Alt-C, nor the menu item copy. Paste: Neither Alt-V nor the menu item paste. Mac OS: Copy: Neither Command-C nor the menu item copy. Paste: Neither Command-V nor the menu item paste.
Key binding (i.e. defining key sequences for menu commands) is not connected in AppRunner for any platform (we could have done it for Mac but the aformentioned mods required for cross platform usage would have rendered that throwaway work). Viewer has key equivalents from some menu commands but the way it is implemented bears no relation on how it'll be done for AppRunner.
Note: on the Mac, the menu item works if you've selected something in the body of a HTML document; if you selected something in the URL control, it doesn't. I've opened a separate bug for that issue.
Key binding/commands have been pushed back to M6 when we expect the blocking issues to be resolved
Key binding is now an M8 task
and on saari's plate
Keybinding is in, continue shelling of XPApps
Moving all Apprunner bugs past and present to Other component temporarily whilst don and I set correct component. Apprunner component will be deleted/retired shortly.
Move to M11 for now ...
Move to M12 for now ...
Move to M13.
This bug sounds very similar to 14026. One or the other should probably be marked a duplicate. I think 14026 has more information (and is assigned to davidm right now I think) so we may want to mark this as fixed (since the keybinding works) or as a duplicate.

Resolved as duplicate. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 14026 ***
Verifying as duplicate; this technically is the first bug, but 14026 is being actively used by development for tracking.
