Vers 7 CMD-V does not work into the search and replace fields

When pasting into the search or replace dialogue boxes, CMD-V does not work.

A workaround is to use the Paste option in the contextual menu

I can confirm this bug. Running Mac OSX 10.8.2.
Will try that work around.

Good point! I did look at "Keyboard Shortcuts" and Option+V is described as "Paste pastes the content from the clipboard into the book."—which is exactly what it does—pastes *into the book*. But generally Option+V pastes content into the field where the curser is, right?

So maybe this isn't a bug but a feature?

I don't know if it is related, but the same thing happens when I try and past a clip into the Find or Replace fields - it puts the Clip into the code area.

Try unsetting/removing the Paste shortcut. Seems it may be an issue with Qt5 on Mac at least. It works ok on Linux.

@Turtle91 - Pasting a clip into F&R works find for me, on Linux.

I'm using Win8 Pro 64...Clips into F&R definitely don't work on this one.

This is a nasty bug. Makes Sigil almost useless, at least for me, inspite all the good new features.
But there is a work-around. CMD-C for copy works, then use right-click into search or replace and choose paste.
This takes a little more time but it works.

BTW CMD-V into the Save As field does not work either, but same work-around.

I hope that also works for Win 8.

Terribly sad to see this is not fixed in 7.2. Is it necessary to raise an issue in order for this to get fixed. I agree with buecherhans, I prefer not to use the new version.

So, when is it an OS (W8) problem rather than a Sigil problem?

It works in XP and AFAIK Vista and W7, Ubuntu Linux

It sounds more like a bug in Qt...

This is still an issue with 7.2.
I'm not sure why that would be a QT bug?? It seems using a clip would insert wherever you have the active cursor.. If it is in the S/R fields it should insert into the S/R field...if it is in the code window, it should insert there.

It might be a Qt-bug, since it works on some OS according to the reports.

I'm not sure why you think it wouldn't be a Qt bug? I'd bet pretty good money it is, myself.
