Clipboard

Hi everyone,
I've had this problem since many many releases of Calamus, but I had always hoped it would disappear in the next release. I think David Barkin came across this problem as well... : sometimes the clipboard (Liberty) just doesn't respond. Whenever I try to cut or paste, to or from the clipboard, it says : Hey, select an object first in the window !
Is there a solution ?

Hi Jerry.

Can you describe step-by-step how to produce this behaviour?

Hello Ulf,
Suppose I want to take a frame from a document to paste it into another document. First, I copy the frame into the clipboard. When I want to paste it in the other document, 5 times out of ten, it wouln't. It keeps telling me : "No object selected - please select en object first in the window"

See you
Merry Christmas

Hi Jerry,

usually this alert occurs when the document window is not the topmost window. If you selected e.g. not only an icon of the clipboard panel window, but topped the clipboard panel window itself, Calamus cannot recognize the desired document window and reports this alert.

Is this true for your described case?

Hello Ulf,
Well, I made sure my document window is the topmost window, and I still can't cut an object from that document to the pasteboard. I have the message : No object selected - Please select an object first in the window.
Hope you can help.

Hi,

I have encountered a similar problem sometimes. It occurred with (a) certain module(s), but I don't remember which one(s). I think it occurred with Calipso1. I imported a PS graphic, try to copy it to the pasteboard and I get your massage. After switching to the frame module I could use the pasteboard.

Which module is active when it occurs with you?

Hi Jerry + Paul.

Paul is absolutely right as far as Calipso 1 is concerned.

Please keep in mind that some modules change the current document edit mode. The Calamus clipboard works context sensitive and reacts in different ways if you e.g. select text in an active text frame or select the text frame itself.

Calipso 1 used a special edit mode which did not allow to move, copy or put frames from or to the Calamus clipboard. Paul did right when he first changed to the frame module. In this case, the frame edit mode became the current one - would you have expected this? ;-)

Jerry, please check which module was the active one before you wanted to put something on the clipboard. The reaction of the current clipboard depends on the current document edit mode, not on the clipboard itself. So the reaction should be the same if you use LIBerty or the basic clipboard.

Hi Paul, Hi Ulf,
You're both very right. As you say, Ulf, who would have expected this ? But, does This happen with other modules or with Calipso 3 ?
Thanks to both of you.

There is a handful of modules which use their own document edit mode or switch the current mode. Here is a list without having a look at the sources:

- Text module: text edit mode, text ruler edit mode
- Text Style module: text edit mode
- Indexer PRO: text edit mode
- Vector module: vector edit mode, vector path edit mode
- LineArt module: vector edit mode, vector path edit mode
- Calipso 1: special mode - incompatible with Clipboard

I swear there are one or two more modules of this kind, but having a big flu, I rather search my bed instead of searching sources. ;-)

Hi Ulf,
Thanks a lot.
For the big flu, I'm sure many Calamus users have had their share of big flu. Why don't you Invers guys create an aspirin module for Calamus...?
