Warning: Scrubbing disables single-line copy-and-paste

In Microsoft text-editing products (such as Visual Studio and SQL Server script editor), copying and pasting with no text selected will normally duplicate the current line.

With scrubbing enabled, pasting will paste the whole line (without line terminators) back into the middle of the current line at the position of the cursor. Clearing the whitespace and line-break settings did not resolve the problem. I needed to disable scrubbing completely.

This also happened when running Visual Studio in a Remote Desktop session, where ClipboardFusion was not installed on the remote machine.

Interesting! We'll test this out here and see what we can find out. We'll keep you posted as soon as we have more news.

Ok, we've looked into this, and it looks like Visual Studio looks to see if it owns the data in the Clipboard before it decides what to do with the pasted data. With scrubbing enabled, ClipboardFusion has to take ownership of the clipboard, and there is no way to set it back.

That would explain why it also happened when you were trying the same thing in an RDP session, since the RDP session also takes ownership of the clipboard data when copied.

Unfortunately the only workaround would be to disable scrubbing, or add Visual Studio to the Ignore Programs list in the ClipboardFusion Settings.
