Reply to: String copy crashes XMetaL

I can't seem to reproduce this with any files we provide out of the box: DITA, the Journalist sample, etc, but…

Where are you copying that content from?

That is going to make a difference. How XMetaL Author handles what it is asked to paste depends on what is on the Windows clipboard, and that will vary widely depending on which application added it onto the clipboard.

Which document type are you pasting into?

That is going to make a big difference as XMetaL Author handles some things on its own (natively) but it can be extended using script to handle more clipboard content types, and to handle the content in different ways, modify it before pasting, perform transformations on it, as well as perform actions after pasting.

The view you are pasting the content into is going to make a difference as well: Tags On, Normal or Plain Text.
