Subject: Re: problems with cut and paste in version 19
My apologies for the lack of specificity.
I am using Windows 7 on a Lenova thinkpad, using the 32-bit version. From
what I have seen, however, the problem seems to be more general than just
with my specifications, and seems to be affecting all version 19 users.
At any rate, the difficulty I am having is with cutting and pasting within
the data editor. I copy a few cells in spss and try to copy those values
into other cells, but it refuses to copy.
In my situation, it is not copying, but I have read about spss changing
values as well when pasting, similar to what Andrés mentioned.
I have read some testimonies about Patch 19.0.1 not working, but I will give
it a try. Thanks for the suggestion.
