    Select Text, Cut & Paste in 4E Unity?

    Hello,

    I have noticed that i cannot select text to cut & paste within all but "story" entries. For example "powers" "items" etc.

    I'm fairly certain i used to be able to select text and cut & paste within those fields. I am using the 4E Ruleset and Unity.

    Is this a bug?

    Thanks,
    Shimrath.

    Are the records unlocked, and does the field have the text focus caret?

    I just made a random custom power, and cut and paste into every field once it was unlocked.

    On an unlocked power, with text in the power description section I can not highlight select any text. I thought this was because of the effect highlight of text parsing. Would be great if I could select text and cut and paste on powers.

    No extensions on

    For me:
    1) Ctrl-A always works to highlight all the text (and then Ctrl-C to copy or Ctrl-V to overwrite.)
    2) If the field is a formattedtext field then you can highlight just a portion to copy or overwrite
    3) For a plain text field, you can only highlight the whole field with Ctrl-A. Cannot seem to highlight or copy/overwrite just a portion of the text.

    The auto-parsing of the attack/damage information prevents the mouse selection from occurring. It's a tradeoff from allowing the mouse to do the hover/roll. You can still select using the Shift plus arrow keys.

    Yes, thank you! I will try that as well. Never knew about Shift + Arrow Keys!
