Good day folks.
After getting my two recent threads (Chapter split in OvPro and Embedding
an object),answered with some useful solutions, I was doing some final
test work before embarking on a complete reconstruction/edit of the
book/document in question. (Nb.1)
That is, I've created a new blank template document, and it's my intention
to copy & paste or bluebox drag material from the old document to the new
Additionally, any chapters in the old document that have a lot of
graphics, I intended to copy and paste those chapters from the old
document to the new document, and it's here I've hit a snag and a strange
I have both old and new documents open on screen.
Old doc I click in the middle of a chapter page.
Do... Menu-Page-Copy chapter.
Go to the new doc, activate it an click in the middle of the last chapter,
Do... Menu-Page-Paste chapter. After current chapter.
Ooeer! The chapter pasted into the new document is not the chapter I had
activated/selected and copied in the Old doc.
It is always the/a previous chapter.
Looking at the clipboard, the chapter copied from the old document is
always the previous chapter.
I have open on screen the old document, beside it I have a virgin opened
new default document.
Copy a chapter from the old document, Chapter D, (The caret was in the
middle of the chapter D page) But the clipboard shows chapter C is now on
Activate the new virgin document and paste chapter after...
The chapter copied and obviously pasted is chapter C NOT D.
Maybe my original document has some glitch in it...
Create two new default documents.
Create a couple of chapters and put names in each one.
Copy chapter 2 to the clipboard.
Open a new virgin def document, paste chapter after...
That works correctly and chapter 2 is pasted in, after...
So fundamentally it's not an OvPro problem...
The simple solution to allow me to get the material from the old document
is quite straightforward, in that if I want to actually copy chapter "D" I
need to do the copy action in chapter "E" (Madness descends).
Lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalaa! Where's that White canvas coat with
the leather attachments?
So the problem must/does lie in my old document, but what I wonder?
I have manually checked the old document, all the chapters 1,2,3,nnn are
there and in the correct order.
Bottom line question folks...
Anyone have any idea what might be causing this chapter C&P glitch?
Nb.1 Originally I was not going to take the new/reconstruct path, just do
a re-edit of the original document, but considering the origins of the
document go a long way back to Imp Publisher, and after the two thread
discussions, and time to consider, I decided to start a new document and
edit into that.
Nb.2 If I Save out my Old document as a DDLfile then when re-loaded into
OvPro the chapter copy works correctly.
