#12858 closed bug (no change required)

Screenshot application: the "Copy to clipoboard" button does nothing.

Reported by: Giova84 Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: Applications/Screenshot Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All


If I open the Screenshot application and then I press on the "Copy to clipboard" button, and then I attempt to paste such image in any other application (eg: WonderBrush, Gobe, EasyPaint) nothing will happen, as if the "Copy to clipboard" leads to nothing.

Works for me, tested on hrev40357 Copy to Clipboard button works as expected, pastes into Wonderbrush as expected.

Hi John, so this could be a fault of my system: what I can attempt to check?

If I do a

clipboard -d

from a terminal window after clicking on "Copy to clipboard" from the Screenshot app I get

BMessage('DATA') {
        image/bitmap = BMessage(0x0) {
                class = string("BBitmap", 8 bytes)
                _frame = BRect(l:0.0, t:0.0, r:1359.0, b:767.0)
                _cspace = int32(0x8 or 8)
                _bmflags = int32(0x0 or 0)
                _rowbytes = int32(0x1540 or 5440)
                _data = (type = 'RAWT')(size = 4177920)

Seems ok, but in fact I cannot paste such image in any applications: the "Paste" entries is gray.

It looks like the Copy to Clipboard part is working, at least it is receiving some bitmap data. From the looks of it you are getting a 1400x768 bitmap which most likely matches your screen resolution. I tested taking a full screen screenshot and I get similar output from clipboard -d. Data type is also 'RAWT' for me. Pasting into Wonderbrush works for me. Maybe this could be mime type issue?

Ok, I have some news about:

In WonderBrush - as I've said - the "paste" option is gray, as if I don't have any clipboard to paste; however if inside WonderBrush I hit CTRL+V (in Haiku I set CTRL as shortcut key) I am able to paste the screenshot from the clipboard, but I am unable to do the same (via CTRL+V) in any other applications which are able to accept clipboard images (eg: Gobe Productive, EasyPaint and Scribus): IIRC, once I was able to paste the clipboard image in every application.

Let me know if I can investigate further.

I can paste into WonderBrush and ArtPaint (hrev50410 here). That WonderBrush greys out the "Object" menu items is a bug/lacking feature in WonderBrush. (Something's amiss with WB's clipboard anyway; some things sometimes only seem to work when using the menu, other stuff when using the keycombo.)
