On a Mac with LC 8.6.1 (Community) Tabs coming from LiveCode are converted to spaces when pasted to a Google spreadsheet, but are not converted when pasting from BBEdit.
I'm collecting data into a tab-delimited row (line) and putting it on the Clipboard, then pasting the row into a Google spreadsheet. For example: *put theData["Date"] &tab& theData["First name"] \* *&tab& theData["Surname"] into theRow* *set the ClipboardData["text"] to theRow* When I go to a Google Spreadsheet, click in an empty cell and paste, the tabs are ignored (converted to spaces) and the entire row gets pasted into the single cell as space-delimited. I have discovered a workaround. If I first paste from LiveCode to BBEdit (the tabs are recognized) and then copy and paste from BBEdit to the spreadsheet, the tabs are OK and the data populates into separate cells. I've tried this with Safari, Firefox, and Chrome, so the problem isn't browser-specific. I don't want to ask my end-user to paste into another application before pasting into the spreadsheet. Anyone know of a fix for this? -- Paul -- White Feather Software www.whitefeather.com Cell: 408-391-1480 _______________________________________________ use-livecode mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org Please visit this url to subscribe, unsubscribe and manage your subscription preferences: http://lists.runrev.com/mailman/listinfo/use-livecode
