Selective display: Copy Visible.
« on: December 21, 2014, 05:07:50 am »
Open some source file, collapse a block.
Select 3 or 4 files, spanning the collapsed area.


View->CopyVisible.


Paste into NOTEPAD - you get what you expect, just the visible text.
Paste into this forum, you get all the hidden text.


CopyVisible puts different text into the different clipboard formats.
Apparently, the HTML format doesn't respect CopyVisible.

The HTML format has a bug. When I tried to paste into this post, it worked fine for me because for me the HTML clipboard wasn't used. If I paste into an email or MS word, then it uses the HTML clipboard.

This is hot-fixable. Not sure when we will have hot fixes for 19.0.1 though.
