Can't copy and paste into other applications. Is this normal

Post by Icelander » Tue Jun 13, 2017 10:51 pm

I can't copy text in Mellel and paste into other applications. I can only copy and paste or drag text between Mellel documents.
I also can't drag text from Mellel to the Finder to create text clips.

The only way to get text from Mellel into other applications is Export from the File menu. Is this normal?

You shouldn’t have any problems copying and pasting items in Mellel. I can copy and paste text within a Mellel doc, or into other applications using Command-C or Command-V.

I can also drag text between documents or to the desktop (to create a clipping). I can also drag text to an app's icon in the Dock, Text Edit, for instance, and drop the text onto the icon. A new file will then open with the text inserted, and the file is ready to be named and saved.

Thank you for the feedback.

I deleted the preferences file, and now everything is fine. Must have got corrupted. :roll:

Thanks again.
