Ctrl-V fails in SEARCH dialog

Post by JohnWasilewski » Thu Jun 04, 2020 4:17 pm

TextMaker Professional 2021 (rev S1014.0529) 64bit

This 'issue', as reported to the Beta-test forum on
https://forum.softmaker.com/viewtopic.php?f=375&t=19972 ,
has not been fixed.

It is still happening n the now-issued SMO2021 release:
Whenever I try to use Ctrl-V in the search box, even if I expressly click the cursor into the search string field, TM is still always pasting the clipboard string into my document, not into the search field.

Right-click>paste does paste the search string into the search string field.
Ctrl-V always damages the document by pasting the search string into the document text.

that he had been able to reproduce this issue and had reported it to your developers. It is not yet fixed, though.

I do hope we can have this corrected soon.

Thanks for reporting this problem for TextMaker 2021. We already reported this to our development team. I have forwarded it again.

DearSoftMaker,

Contrary to the advice you received and passed on from your developers, this bug HAS NOT BEEN FIXED!
I can confirm that it does seem not to happen in quite so many occasions as before but there is at least one where it still happens all the time.

Whenever I do this:
  • Select a text string from a document I have open in one tab,
    Go to another tab where I want to find it.
    Press Ctrl F then Ctrl V,
TextMaker does this:
  • Switches tabs for me
    Opens a search dialog
    Stamps the search string into the document text not the search field
    Leaves the dialog search field untouched.
If I modify the process by adding an extra step which, surely, ought to correct this unintended action, like this:
  • Select a text string from a document I have open in one tab,
    Go to another tab where I want to find it.
    Press Ctrl F
    Click the mouse pointer in the dialog search field
    Press Ctrl V,
TextMaker now shows a blinking cursor in the search field but, blow me, the damned thing STILL walks my search string all over the text of my document, and still leaves the search field, with its blinking, wretched, cursor, untouched.

Please, please, hurry up and get all these bugs out of TextMaker 21.

I tried to reproduce this problem with the steps as you have mentioned but I found it is working fine as expected. Can you please create a screen recording of this problem using any tool like www.screentogif.com etc. for a better understanding of this problem.
