#12677 new defect

Copy & Paste Formats

Reported by: RobinHood70 Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.7.3 Keywords: cut copy paste


When copying & pasting text from an IRC chat window (and presumably any other chat window) in Pidgin, the selection is ONLY placed on the clipboard in HTML format. This means that you cannot paste the text of the selection into a text box or a browser's address bar, for instance.

Multiple formats should be copied to the clipboard, including both plain text and HTML format at a minimum.

While this might be considered an "enhancement", I'm categorizing it as a "defect", since nearly every application out there that copies text would put it on the clipboard in text format as well as others, so the behaviour from Pidgin is unexpected.
