Bug?: Not scrubbing Excel clipboard properly when using Hotkey

I have a spreadsheet that I use to pull data from another tab and I copy those cells and either A) paste values or B) scrub it then paste it. This eliminates the formulas from the content I copied and pastes JUST the data. Well when I use a hotkey to do it, it doesn't scrub the formulas. If I right-click on the clipboard fusion icon and do "Scrub Now" it'll work fine.

I've tested and confirmed this issue here, that's really strange! I also noticed that if auto-scrub is enabled, it also works fine. So it only seems to now work when doing a scrub via hotkey. We'll add this to our list, and let you know as soon as it's fixed up.

Thanks!

Keith, is this working now (in both the paid and free versions)?

We haven't been able to fix this up yet, but I will definitely post an update when we're able to :)

Thanks!

You said you would update when this issue was resolved. This was reported 4 years ago. Has there been any progress on this?

This is an unfortunate issue because Excel is brutal to work with. It doesn't follow any of the standard windowing rules and aggressively manages the clipboard to the point where ClipboardFusion has too many issues with it. We've tried many times to work around it without success.

Does CBF work any better with LibreOffice (which is actually what I use!)?

I haven't tested it lately, but last time I did it had similar issues to Excel
