BUG: Ctrl+C doesn't work on OCR'ed text

Post by Karyudo » Sun Apr 26, 2020 10:29 pm

Scanned a page of text (columns). OCR'ed. Selected either rows or columns. Pressed Ctrl+C to copy. Flipped over to Google Sheets and pressed Ctrl+V to paste: nothing. Go back and right-click to choose 'Copy', and then flip back to Google Sheets, and text is pasted correctly. Conclusion: Ctrl+C doesn't work to copy OCR'ed text.

Hello Karyudo,

This is a known issue with the current version of the Editor. It is related to the panes such a Bookmarks Pane etc. - when one of these is enabled, Ctrl+C doesn't work as intended. This issue will be resolved in the next version of the Editor.

Meanwhile, you can use Right click -> Copy or close all Panes before using Ctrl+C.
