Default FP11 cmd-copy and cmd-paste on mac

Just updated to FusionPro® VDP Creator 11.0.9 and noticing that on my mac version 10.16 that when I do the usual cmd-C and cmd-V it does not work anymore.

Is there any way to get this working again with the shortcut keys? Being able to quickly copy and paste text is very efficient, especially in the RULES editor.

Instead, I see I can highlight the text, right click and select copy and then right click and select paste, which is annoying and slow.

When I copy and paste from a text edit file to a Fusion Rule Editor I now use cmd-C to copy the text and control-V to paste the rule.

If I am copying and pasting in the Rule Editor I use control-C to copy and
control-V to paste.

Thank you! This has been driving me crazy. Strange oversight on the dev's part.

Not to get too deep into the inner workings, but I can assure you that this wasn't intentional, nor an oversight. This is one of those things where we are limited as to what we can do as a plug-in to a third-party application (Acrobat), as the application has the ultimate control. We spent more time than I care to admit trying to debug and track down low-level messages in Cocoa and macOS to see where the keypress message was being lost along the way of the routing from the application to the edit control, to no avail. Acrobat seems to be stubborn about absorbing those particular keypress events. We've asked Adobe about it as well, but troubleshooting issues like this in custom modal dialogs in third-party plug-ins doesn't seem to be high on their priority list.

So we do strive to be consistent with UI standards on both Windows and Mac, and I apologize that we haven't been able to do that in this case.

I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
