Can't paste text in ResEdit

(1/1)

OS923:
If you experience that you can't paste text in ResEdit, then try this:
1. Make a new resource file.
2. Make a new 'TEXT' resource.
3. Paste your text here.
4. Select it.
5. Copy it.
6. You can now paste it everywhere.

IIO:
would simpletext not "correct" the issues with certain text formats in the clipboard, too?

OS923:
Old versions of the MacOS require that you explicitly import/export a local clipboard from/to the global clipboard. Old programs like ResEdit do that but in OS 9 it may fail to import. TextEdit uses its own clipboard. Thatís why it works when you make a 'TEXT' resource.
