Copying and pasting from Textmaker 2008 for Linux

Postby jeffneedle » Tue Dec 21, 2010 6:15 am

I'm a book reviewer and want to write my reviews in Textmaker. I have the 2008 version for Linux that was distributed as part of the latest charity drive.

When I select all text and copy from within Textmaker, and then try to paste the text into an Evolution e-mail body, nothing is pasted. I've tried several times, with several different documents, and get the same result.

I'm using the latest version of Ubuntu (10.10).

Any help you can offer will be very much appreciated.

Does it work if you try to paste the text from TextMaker in anther text processor like Open Office Writer?

Yes, I can cut and paste from Textmaker to OpenOffice. It would seem the problem is with Evolution, no? But I can easily cut and paste between OpenOffice, gedit, and any other editing program I've tried. So the problem is unique between Textmaker and Evolution.

Thanks. I'm looking forward to any wisdom that can be offered.

Can you please test if the problem still exist with TextMaker 2010 on your machine? You can find the free trial version here:

I downloaded the deb file and installed it, but got an error halfway through the install, problem with aptdaemon. I have no idea what this means, but I wasn't able to install the 2010 version. I'll try again later after I ask some Linux friends what this means.
