5.8 (Beta 1) issue - Scrubbed text not getting added back on the clipboard

After updating to 5.8 (Beta 1) my macro isn't behaving like it should.

I have it set to copy a text, then scrub this text, and paste it.

Code



The double copy command triggers a scrub of the text. Although, thinking about it now, I could replace that with BFS.ClipboardFusion.RunTriggers, but that's besides the point right now.

It doesn't paste the resulting text. A CTRL+V shows that there is nothing to paste on my clipboard, but when I open the clipboard history of ClipboardFusion, the scrubbed text is at the top of the list.

Okay. Not sure what happened, but after writing this post, it has started working. I did test it several times during writing the post even. Maybe something happened when I opened the macro, looked at it, and saved it.

Edit: Actually. It is still happening with a, so far, unpredictable pattern.

Hi!

In our current beta we've made a lot of changes to the way scripting works in the back end, as well as being a bit more strict about how ClipboardFusion can trigger its Triggers.

It looks like you're trying to invoke the double copy command by just copying twice, but this might be happening too quickly for ClipboardFusion to count it as two separate events, or since you're waiting 300ms for the scrubbing to happen, the Triggers might not even be finished running.

I think that if you intend to run the Triggers, you should use the "BFS.ClipboardFusion.RunTriggers" function. It runs the Triggers without any hassle, and it also waits for them to finish running before it continues the rest of the code in your Macro.

Thanks!

I will update to the command instead of running 2 copy commands, but, as evidenced by the cbfusion clipboard history, I can confirm that it has copied and ran the trigger, as the expected output is there. it just hasnt set it to the windows clipboard, ready for pasting.

We just released ClipboardFusion 5.8.4, would you be able to update to this new version and give it another try? Thanks!

The issue remains in 5.8.5. It seems to be completely random.

@oteqekon: Could you attach a backup of your DisplayFusion Settings? (Settings > Options > Export)

I won't be doing that because I have sensitive information under my trigger settings. But I will say that the issue is unbelievably annoying, since it's seemingly random.

ClipboardFusion didn't have this problem before, so the developers should just take a closer look at whatever changes they made to the trigger/scrubbing feature...

We've just posted 5.8.5 Beta 2, and this should hopefully be fixed for good now. Please let me know if not.

Thanks!

It seems to be working a lot better. There are times when I'll have to copy text twice or more before it sticks to the clipboard, but that may be an application issue...

Ok, thanks for the update! If you notice a pattern to the issue of having to copy multiple times, let me know and I'll see if I can reproduce it here as well.

Thanks!

Contrary to the latest beta's release notes, I don't think the problem is fully fixed. Is anyone else still experiencing this issue?

We haven't run into it here since we released Beta 3. Can you confirm you're on Beta 3 and not still on Beta 2?
