Hi, when I try to copy(Ctrl C) and then paste(Ctrl V) in whatever map, CalTool refuses.


What happens is that for some reason CalTool tries to paste the selected cell(’s) two times on the X-axis(doubles), but is then responding that the clipboard cannot be copied. Copying the clipboard to Word or Excel works fine and shows correct…


I remember having this issue before, and with some kind of upgrade(Windows or CalTool, I don’t remember) it then worked fine, but now obviously it doesn’t anymore.

 

Just to add, copying a complete map in the explorer parameter group, and the pasting it back in the parameter groep, does work.


Any suggestions?

Edit; I thought I was in the PiCalTool category, my mistake.

Because you are trying to past it into different sized area.. easiest is say highlight an area of 6 x 6 but only click on the top right of destination (1 Square)   if you are copying a single row, do the same but the row must have same or more amount of sites.

Well, no, I've tried all this, it just doesn't work.

Even copying a single cell doesn’t work. When I copy one cell(or for that matter more than one), say from fuel map 1, I then select fuel map 2, I can select any cell and try to copy into that cell(or the same cell, it doesn’t matter) but get the error message, and at the same time the highlighted area has doubled on the x- axis from left to right… And only doubles on the x-axis, never the y-axis.

 

If I copy two cells on the x-axis, then when trying to paste by clicking on one cell, it doesn’t work anyway, but after that 4 cells are being highlighted on the destination map.

 

I’ve had this before, I think it was a problem on how it was copied to the clipboard(like white spaces instead of normal spaces, or a dot instead of a comma), but I verified the clipboard and it’s all correct, I don’t get it…

Try not using the keyboard but right click on the highlighted area and select copy, then same when you want to paste.. I am suspect you are victim of a French keyboard. The ASCI's are probably messing  the system.  I worked for another ecu company and French keyboards and key strokes were a big issue.. German also can be not so friendly.

Did try that too, doesn't work, I even tried to change my keyboard layout settings(windowz), still same result, I'm stuck...

I'm still guessing it has something to do with the clipboard

Comma decimal place in European laptops... your email reminded me.. In windows, go to Settings, Region. In the Formats TAB you will see date settings and bottom right is Additional settings box, click on that, In Customise Format box that pops up is Numbers, Decimal Symbol, change from "," to "."    Almost 20 years but I now remember this from French/German/Czech settings....  Pretty sure that will fix it..

Cheers

Yes that did the trick!

 

Before I tried to change the keyboard layout from Belgian comma to Belgian dot, but that did not change anything but the keypad layout.

 

It works and instead of having commas for decimal places, I have dot’s now.

Thanks!
