Copy Left/Right does not work

Postby FrodoHobbit » Tue Jul 07, 2020 9:57 am

I compare two C-Sources, select a line (red background), now I would like to copy the content from one file to the other. I press ALT+Left or ALT+Right but nothing happens. Select the corresponding menu item from the merge menu (it is activated, not grayed out) -> nothing happens.
Very rarely, copy works, but often the result is undesired (merging content of lines into a different line instead of copying into the desired destination.
I'm using winmerge 2.16.6 on WIndows 7, this used to work with version 2.14.0

EDIT: I have downgraded now to 2.14.0 again where this important feature works. 2.14.0 is definitely the version to recommend.

I don't get it either.
In 2.16.6 copy doe not work anymore. :evil:

Sometimes it copies nothing.
Sometimes it copies 1 word only or the whole line or the whole line without spaces (WTF) or (if you're lucky) the whole block.

To be sure to copy the whole block you need to : double click the selction + click the last line + copy :shock: :roll:
