If you paste text into the text field nothing much happens, you need to force an update through e.g. a space or delete.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I can't reproduce this. I have the text "case structure" on my clipboard. I press Ctrl-Space to bring up Quick Drop, then Ctrl-V pastes "case structure" into Quick Drop, and I can drop a case structure. I'm using LabVIEW 2017. I think there might have possibly been an issue with Ctrl-C/X/V not working in older versions, what version are you using?
I do not have this issue with 2016. But it does stick in my mind that there was, at least at one time, a CAR about copy/paste not working in QD due to the CTRL shortcuts. Do you have a shortcut set to use CTRL+V installed?
I attached a GIF of what I am seeing in LabVIEW 2017 and while the QD list doesn't visually update after a copy-paste it still recognizes what item I have. However, this will only work when the text you have pasted in perfectly matches an item so "case structure" will work but "case structur" and "cs" (QD shortcut) will not work.
Hopet ctrl+V is just pasting the text and no event is getting triggered, co some keyboard actions are required to generate an event.
Got it, thanks for the clarifications everybody. I have filed CAR 662524 and will do my best to get this fixed in a future LabVIEW release.
