Clipboard type used during the paste should be TEXT
SecureCRT 5.1.0 build 207
This is not easy to explain so let's go step by step...
I'm working all day long on Unix machines using SecureCRT.
On the other hand, I'm working as well with MS Office.
Unfortunately when one will write a doc or a procedure (or even a single mail in Outlook), MS Word will do "autocorrect" stuffs on the text as you type.
For example if you type "ls -lrt", MS Word will translate it to "Ls -lrt" where the dash (ascii 0x2D) has been replaced by a stupid longer dash (ascii 0x96).
See the attached example.txt. Open it in an editor and then switch to hexa view.
If you copy this text (including the 0x96 character) and paste it on securecrt, the character is sent as-is while I would like to have the 0x20 char sent.
You might tell me that the problem is on the MS Word side and that I should disable the "autocorrect" option.
Well. Most of the documents used are not mine and it will be difficult to change the settings in a 5000 engineer group.
I had a look at the windows clipboard API and found that several versions of the clip are saved. (http://www.codeproject.com/clipboard...clipboard1.asp)
What would do the trick is to have an option to use the CF_TEXT version of the clipboard during the paste instead of CF_UNICODETEXT.
HANDLE hClipboardData = GetClipboardData(CF_TEXT);
