WF Pro 3: CTRL+C and CTRl+V not working
Thread poster: pcs_MCIL
Jun 19, 2012

Is it just me or the CTRL+C and CTRl+V keystrokes doesn't work anymore?
I have to select the word(s), right clic and choose copy / paste (whatever applies)

It is so time consuming when I have to lookup for a term on google, I end up in re-typing the word directly in my browser.

Check preferences Jun 19, 2012

Have you checked your key commands/assignments in preferences?

Hi Alex,

I never edited the keystrokes preferences.
I checked and it corretly lists CTRL+C for copy and CTRL+V for paste, etc.

Beside that, it lists them twice, namely:

Copy CTRL + C In Dialog and Windows
Copy CTRL + Ins In Dialog and Windows

Paste CTRL+V In Dialog and Windows
Paste Shift + Ins In Dialog and Windows

Cut CTRl +X In Dialog and Windows
Cut Shift + Del In Dialog and Windows

Could that be the problem? With the previous version of WF Pro I never had this issue, and I was able to copy-paste text from and to the Editor view.

Normal Jun 20, 2012

No, it's normal to have both entries and they should work OK.

Does copy paste work on other programs like notepad for example?

Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V should work, of course, but a better way to look terms up in Google (and lots of other sources) is to use IntelliWebSearch: just select the term or phrase you're interested in, hit the shortcut (by default, Ctrl+Alt+B) and IntelliWebSearch will automatically fire up your browser and launch a search in Google, IATE, Termium etc.

It works anywhere but in WF Jun 20, 2012

The CTRL+C and CTRL+V commands works anywhere but in Wordfast.
I am experiencing this issue since WF Pro 3 was released, before that it worked just fine.

@Dominique: thanks for the suggestion, will definitely install it!

Download latest version Oct 29, 2013

Hello Rudolf,

are you using the latest version, v. 3.2.2? That solved a lot of bugs.
I haven't had the chance to notice if this was one of those, but give it a try!

Unfortunately, I am using 3.2.2 and this problem is still there.


 
Re-install it Nov 28, 2013

I had the same problem when I first started to use that CAT-Tool.
You just have to unistall it and install it again!icon_smile.gif

Hope it works!

Best regards

check Preferences > Keys Dec 2, 2013

Go to Preferences > Keys and Search for Copy and check if you see Binding Ctrl+C, similarly do for paste to check if Binding is present.

If not then add Ctrl+C binding and select In Dialogs and Windows for When.

Let us know if that worked.

... and worked out a solution: go to Edit - Keys

Find the Paste command in the table. Unbind the command and then bind it again - this must trigger something and it will hopefully work as usual.icon_smile.gif
