Just to make sure, the crash you're talking about also exists for 2.2.x, right? > I had today a look for potential things that should go in before LyX 2.3.0 > and I think > https://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/9139 > is worth it. > The feature of pasting from TeX had been broken under Windows for years > (maybe since ever) therefore a new major version is the right point to > introduce this feature also for Windows users. I don't see the advantage of doing this at a major version. Even if there is an advantage, I don't think that so soon before the final release is the right time for this non-trivial patch. From what I understand, this temporary file name stuff is tricky. I know you've tested the patch and it works for you, but I'm worried there could be hidden problems. > I distributed now all changes in the docs and despite there are still things > to document I would wait unless you say I should use the time update the > docs until the last hour before the release. I think waiting makes sense. Thanks, Scott
