Let Jari know about the request to flip ties. He might add it.

Charles, the Windows clipboard can contain formatting in addition to the text itself, depending on the application it came from. There may not be tags in the text you copy from the browser window, but the clipboard knows it's HTML because it comes from a browser, with information about font, alignment, color, etc. That's why you can copy from a browser window, paste it into MSWord, and have all that formatting retained. It only pasted the text itself into your hex editor, but there is more to the data in the clipboard than the characters themselves.

The contents of the clipboard can also be, among others, rich text (formatted, e.g. MSWord), a graphic, or plain text with no formatting. This last, plain text, is what Finalescript and Notepad traffic in, which is why the method of going from browser to Notepad to Finalescript works.

May I put in a plug here for ClipMate, a $35 program that extends the Windows clipboard? I find it extremely useful for the work I do, well worth the cost. It remembers more than one clip, lets you make libraries of permanent clips, paste a series of clips in succession, and a lot of other stuff. Very powerful.

One of its functions is to turn formatted text into plain text, so for the problem at hand one could copy the script from the browser, type a hotkey to remove formatting from the clip, then paste into Finalescript.

I was not aware of all that.  I'll have a look at the app.

It does for me.

Problems copying and pasting a script from the forum are likely due to the copied text being HTML. If you first paste it into Notepad and then copy and paste from that, it should work. (Ideally the Finalescript editor should behave like Notepad and paste as plain text, but it sounds like maybe it doesn't.) If you're having trouble, Arthur, you might try the Notepad trick as well.

Concerning copying and pasting in Finalescript, Finale does not allow either for me. Copying text first into Notepad also produces only the same three options when I try to paste text into the Finalescript editor. What are you doing that I'm not doing?

Can you paste with Ctrl-V?

gogreen,

That pop-up dialog is, at least, caused by right clicking in the editor window.  Just left click to dismiss it and you should be OK.  If you are looking for a command to paste by right clicking, it won't happen.  Do as Motet says, CTRL-V to paste.

Yeah, CTRL-V works. Thanks, Charles and Motet. But how come I never tried that before? I've always right-clicked to copy and paste in every other Windows application. Why, then, is Finale different?

Finalescript doesn't use the standard Windows editing dialog, which is also why it's kind of funky-looking.
