1.) When I hit Enter sometimes it plays the "beep"-sound and no return is done. Mostly I have to hit Enter several times before one return is done.
2.) When I use Copy&Paste it comes often the error message "Cannot open Clipoard.". The content of the clipboard is also lost.
Both problems occur very often and randomly. Do you have solutions for these problems?
Both problems are not known to us.
Can you provide some additional information like the ED version and license you use, what OS and language you use, what hardware you use and if there is any other relevant information.
- Windows 7 x64, German
- C2D 8400, AMD 4850, 8GB RAM
- lastest ED 8.2.5 (with student or network classroom licence)
After I tried ED in a fresh Vista-VM and the editor works fine I restarted Windows and then only ED. No problems at all. After starting every application one after another I probably found the cause: An always running UltraVNC-Viewer. It permanently copy the current clipboard to the remote one and vice versa. Sometimes other clipboard-watching applications like VMs etc. running also in the background. When all of them are closed the ED editor works fine (5 mins of testing...).
It would be great if you can fix this bug. (I guess ED is the cause, other applications runs fine over years with the VNC-client).
I have looked at our engine code and found out that we indeed do something strange with the clipboard. I don't think we can fix this for the upcoming release, but I have put your issue on the development workload.
