So in what way is that different fron Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V in Edit?
Thinking about it, I believe it's actually Edit's problem.
not NetSurf because if you're talking about the URL bar in a browser window,
NetSurf relies on the OS (or something like IcnClipBrd) to handle cut and
paste for it.
When you do Ctrl-V in the field, whatever processes it (the OS on
Select; IcnClipBrd everywhere else) sends the clipboard owner (Edit) a list
of types that it can handle in order of descending preference. For a
writable icon, that will only be text. The owner should look down the list
and pick the best type (or least worst) that it can support, generally
flattening to plain text as a last resort if that option's available.
My guess is that StrongED does that properly. Edit, from what you
doesn't. It's broken, because it isn't supporting the Block Transfer
I just can't get on with StrongEd. I type Ctrl-C and it duplicates the
block in situ or tells me no block is selected, then when I try to
paste it into NS I get some text I had saved some time before from
another document. Then I try Shift-Ctrl-C and -V, and I get the
selected URL twice! Well at least it did paste the URL but it's not
surprising that I gave up on StrongEd.
