Foreign Language Paste
« on: December 27, 2017, 06:18 AM »
Hi
When pasting a clip caught in foreign language, the actual paste is gibberish, even though the clip shows correctly in the app UI.

C H+S is not unicode, as far as I know it needs a big change to be so.

@drgt:
Windows clipboard is unicode, so the last clip you copied will (normally) be correct -- whether pasted via CHS or not, but as soon as you copy another clip it will no longer display many non-English letters accents etc. correctly.

There's a curious non-problematic minor "bug" in CHS that probably does some of what seems to be required here - but it is transient. I noticed it and reported it to @mouser some time back. I think he may have "fixed" it to some extent - not that it was in the way or really needed a fix though. However, under certain conditions (I can't deliberately replicate them), the bug reappears. It has been manifesting itself quite a lot recently. It seems to be usually preceded by my having done a lot of clips/pastes, and is noticeable just after I have copied the contents of an entry of the COD (Concise Oxford Dictionary) into the Clipboard.
The bug manifests by displaying odd behaviour and the RTF/Unicode in the clip text in the CHS Memo pane - including, for example:
  • the colours blue and red used for some words by COD,
  • some bold, italic and different fonts/sizes,
  • special characters (there are often some of these in each COD entry, as accents and phonetic symbols), and
  • the text in the Memo pane itself becomes zoomable with the mouse - e.g., like the image in the Image tab of a Memo pane in CHS is zoomable.

I had said "I would like more of that please!" (OWTTE), but it's apparently not in the design/development plan, and is thus apparently correctly regarded as a "bug" - probably for reasons as described above and elsewhere.    :(

CHS still rules though!   :Thmbsup:   (In my armory of information management tools, at any rate.)

Can you please update the program to support Unicode (foreign languages)?

Is the source code available? Maybe I could look at it.

An offer hard to refuse? ...
