Thanks for your response. I looked at several of the discussions, but it still didn’t fix the issue of my desktop version being unable to copy and paste the column headings into a spreadsheet. It doesn’t copy and paste anywhere. It’s like it doesn’t copy!
Edit: I just tried to do the same with batch create for inventory. THE COPY FUNCTION IS NOT WORKING! It’s not like I haven’t done this before, and to clarify, I updated the program yesterday in order to keep it up to date. Before I updated Manager yesterday (desktop version that I am running on a MBP), I had no problem copying and pasting into my spreadsheet. Now it does not work.
Thanks for your help in advance.
That does not matter. The data should still be copied. The same thing happens for me, but I can still paste into a spreadsheet. I just verified this again, for both Batch Create and Batch Update. I performed the test with version 19.6.38 under macOS 10.14.5.
I have MacOS 10.10 and am using version 19.6.38
I have tried “flushing” my clipboard via activity monitor. I have restarted my computer, and still, I get nothing when I press “copy to clipboard” and then paste into my spreadsheet.
If you have any other suggestions, I would really appreciate it.
Manager always uses a browser, the desktop version just starts a default one.
To open another browser window choose that option when clicking on a link on one of Managers pages. Or copy the link location and paste into the address bar of your browser of preference.
I downloaded the latest firefox and made it my default browser. Unfortunately, I still cannot copy to clipboard in Manager and paste into excel, which leaves me to enter in items (for inventory) one item at a time.
Very time consuming!
I don’t use a Mac so I can’t verify the behaviour. However to access Manager from another browser you need to
Install a browser of your preference
Start manager Desktop. (This starts the local manager server on you computer and accesses it from the Browser Manager is setup to use on a Mac, which I think is Safari).
Click on a link in the default browser window and choose open link in a new window or copy link then paste it into a bowser address bar of your preference.
Then new window should show the normal browser menus. It should continue to function while the initial Manager browser window is open.
I don’t however know if this will be more reliable in copying your data to another program, you will have to try it. To check if it is a browser limitation you would need to try several browser. To check if it is a spreadsheet limitation, try pasting into several different programs. To check if it is an issue with exactly how you are using the program, screen shots may help. Tut may then be able to provide more direct advice as he uses a Mac.
On a Macstep 3 is apparently a little different
