Pasting text into CD/SACD window?

Postby joelgordon » Fri Jan 30, 2015 21:53

Hello all,

I'm running Pyramix 9 and can't paste text into any field in the CD/SACD window. It copies just fine, and if I paste it into another program I can see it. But every time I try to paste, it shows up as an empty white text box, and when I click away, whatever value was in there previously returns. All I want to do is copy song titles, performer names, etc from my e-mail into their relevant fields, but I am unable. Has anyone else encountered this problem or do any of you know a fix or a workaround?

Thanks

Something's not right somewhere. A good start would be to do a "Repair" install of Pyramix with the installer file, over top of your existing install - just to make sure everything is where it's supposed to be. Be sure to disable your anti-virus before.

Try copy/paste from something other than your email, like a very simple text file, just as a test. (I'm wondering about illegal characters...)

It certainly should work - I copy from Open Office spreadsheets all of the time. Just be careful, as Graemme says, of illegal characters like apostrophes -they'll display properly on the screen, but won't translate to the CD player!

Cheers,
Tom

To be specific , no text copy function works within or between any Pyramix window - CD/sacd, mixdown, render, cd etc. And copying from an external source , like a text file or email, doesn't work either . This has been the case since upgrading to a 64 bit computer and pyramix. The kinds of text I'm copying are the same as I've been using for the past decade

In absence of a better explanation I'm placing the blame on the Koch brothers and Scott Walker. John Boehner is no way bright enough to have done this

I'm grateful for any further thoughts
