This is still present in Sugar 0.101.6.

I don't know if this is a bug though. Using this as a "replicating" mechanism makes no sense since we have a proper "duplicate" option.

The current behavior seems natural to me, as clipboard generally contains "raw" (text/image/etc) data. It could be confusing to have have different results when the user keeps raw text from a select-copy action and copy-from-palette action.

I have tried copy a object from the Journal to the clipboard and get

File "/home/gonzalo/sugar-build/build/out/install/lib/python2.7/site-packages/jarabe/journal/palettes.py", line 427, in copy_to_clipboard_cb

clipboard.set_with_data(

AttributeError: 'Clipboard' object has no attribute 'set_with_data'

Worked for you?

Yes, this is how is test it:

Testing environment:

  • XO-4 with 34003xx4 (Sugar-0.102-based OS from AU)

Steps:

  1. create a Write entry with text.
  2. "copy-to" Clipboard from entry palette.
  3. "keep"from Clipboard frame icon.
  4. you should notice that a new entry its created, but only with the raw text content.
