Description Lawrence Lim 2004-09-02 07:15:05 UTC
Description of problem:
Cut and Paste an entry in the time slot, allows the entry to be remove
from the time slot but it does not allow pasting. Hence, Ctrl-X works
but Ctrl-V does not. 

However, Copy and Paste a hightlighted an entry in the time slot
allows the entry to be pasted to a new time slot. So Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- evolution-data-server-0.0.97-2
- evolution-

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Evolution Cal
2.Create an appointment
3.Click on the time slot of the appointment created (will see a
blinking cursor)
4.Hightlight the entry by using shift+home or shift+end
5.Ctrl-X then Ctrl-V 
Actual results:
Cut is good but paste is not

Expected results:
Cut and paste should work

Additional info:
Affect all locale including en_US

Bug filed upstream.

Comment 2 Dave Malcolm 2005-01-20 22:01:17 UTC
Need to be in Day View to reproduce.

"Paste" on right-click context menu seems to work (pasting to the time
selected when the rightclick occurs), it's the Ctrl-V keyboard
shortcut that seems broken (also the main menu Edit->Paste item is
insensitive); these fail to work even if you have a blank timeslot

Arguably either (i) when you do a cut with text selected, it should
cut the text, leaving the appointment behind.  Currently the whole
appointment is cut.
or (ii) should allow Ctrl-V and main menu Edit->Paste, provided you
have a selected timeslot (or maybe even paste to last location)

Open the new appointment window which pops up. Now try to paste whatever was
cutin the summary field. It pastes it in the form of a .ics file with all the
BEGINand END, etc. I have tried it in evolution 2.2.1 on Suse 9.3 RC1.

It works properly with the latest versions.

Comment 8 Akira TAGOH 2005-09-28 09:16:56 UTC
Confirming this resolution is hard due to Bug#167157. after restarting
evolution, I can see the duplicated (copied) appointment though.
