Feedback on CopyMsOfficeTableAddOn

-- FrankPauw - 07 Aug 2003

I moved this add-on out of TablePluginDev into an AddOnPackage. Frank, could you fill in the missing details in CopyMsOfficeTableAddOn?

-- PeterThoeny - 08 Aug 2003

Ok. I will also translate the help file.

-- FrankPauw - 08 Aug 2003

Would it be possible to be more specific where the files go and how to call them. e.g. How does one call CopyTWiki.exe? (If they're supposed to go in /twiki, then I'll have to ask my administrator because I don't have write priviliges to that directory) Thanks

-- BenjaminFleischer - 10 Oct 2003

You only need CopyTWiki.exe this is the Program file the rest is sorcecode. Put the file where ever you want.

-- FrankPauw - 15 Oct 2003

What would I need to compile the source? If I can get up to speed, I'd love to fiddle with this.

-- SamAbrams - 18 Feb 2004

I use Delphi 4 to compile the sorce.

-- FrankPauw - 19 Feb 2004

This is a really neat application, both in terms of idea and implementation. Well done and thankyou Frank.

One thing I would recommend: more obvious menus, or a notice on the LHS saying "right click on the cells to interact."

Also, I would have expected ctrl-v to do a paste but instead it gives me a confusing error message.

-- MartinCleaver - 21 Oct 2004

This neat little application would be really nice if it could handle "new line" within a word table. As it works now it creates a new cell for each new line within an original cell. It should turn those into <br />.

-- KennethLavrsen - 27 Nov 2004

Sorry i think it is impossible make a new line with a break when copying word table with word wrapping....

In the next version it will be soon i will try to improve the pasting. And ad a notice. I will also inplement the ^ symbol for merging cells.

If there are more wishes schout. I'm also working on a native Linux version but the binary is getting very big when i compile it.... And I don't know if there is any interest in a native Linux version.....

Anyone have any idea why i get an "Access violation at address 00448127 in module 'CopyTwiki.exe'. Read of address 000001F0" when i try and paste into the program? At first i thought it was maybe something to do with office 2003, but it happens even if i make a table in the program and then copy and try to paste it back in.

I am using Windows XP Pro with SP2, but not sure why that should matter. Is there any supporting libraries that are needed that i could be missing?

-- BrentTokarchuk - 27 Oct 2005

Ok found some sort of problem. It seems that Ctrl-V doesn't work unless you right click and paste first, after that it seems to work with no problems. Something to maybe look out for in the next version. For now it's usable though.

-- BrentTokarchuk - 27 Oct 2005

I added a SHORTDESCRIPTION to the "Add-On Info" section so that this add-on is represented properly in the AddOnPackage topic and query topics. Please feel free to take this into the next release.
