1.0.2rc4 is Released

September 5, 2011 – 8:26 pm

The source can be downloaded here.

Here are the debian binaries (.deb) files:

v1.0.2rc4 Monday, September 5 2011
+Fix bugs introduced in clipboard code selection. Should fix primary deselect and file cut/paste issue.
+Applied FSF Address change patch from Andrew Starr-Bochicchio, Debian.
+Changed history limit to 1000.
+Applied build patch on new Debian boxes Andrew Starr-Bochicchio, Debian.

This is primarily a bug fix release. The primary selection was a code clean up bug, the others are build patches for the distro maintainer(s).

I wasn’t going to do anything, but since this bug is going to irritate a lot of folks, I figured I’d better get it done now. So much for paid work today. :)

NOTE (this should go in the man page…eventually):
Primary means mouse copy/paste, and this is the X ‘primary’ clipboard
Ctrl-C is the keyboard copy/past, and this is the X ‘clipboard’ clipboard
Syncronize means if you copy with either, it pastes immediately to the other one.
If not syncroized, if you use Ctrl-C, then try to paste with middle mouse, you will get whatever was in the primary keyboard (the last thing you copied with the mouse).

Hope that makes sense.

    When you get time maybe some nice features could be added without trading memory footprint/dependencies :P

  3. tl;dr: copy/paste in libreoffice takes cell number and not formula.

    Thank you for parcellite. It is among the first things I install on boxes after xorg and xfce4.

    When I use libreoffice and copy a formula (=c1+c2 or something like that) and the numbers there are 1 and 1 and the cell shows 2 then parcellite will copy the number 2. When parcellite is not running and I ctrl-c then libreoffice copies the formula (which is somewhat nicer).

    Is it possible to somehow make parcellite also copy formulas in libreoffice calc? I currently have to exit it before using libreoffice and start it back up when I exit.

    thank you for making parcellite and also for reading all of this.

    RickyRockRat: Have you tried Ctrl-V (even though the number shows in Parcellite?). In open office, for example, in a new worksheet, if I put ‘=B2+B4′ in A1, Then arrow to next field, then arrow back to A1, hit Ctrl-C, then Arrow to, say B2, and hit Ctrl-V, the formula is copied, even though parcellite shows just the number. Does that work for Libreoffice? I think these programs store formulas as something other than text, and currently Parcellite only works on text.
