Can't copy launcher command and paste elsewhere

This is odd, but it seems like if I right-click an app -> Edit Application..., and copy its Command value, I can paste it again within the Edit Launcher window, but not anywhere else.  If I go to another app, Paste is grayed out, as if the clipboard is empty.  Is this a bug others are seeing?

Re: Can't copy launcher command and paste elsewhere

Hi and welcome to our forums.

It is indeed odd. I can confirm this on Xubuntu 20.04 with exo-utils version 0.12.11-1ubuntu1.20.04.1

It could be that ExoDieEditor is unintentionally set to clear the clipboard on invocation.

...maybe, are you leaving the 'copy from' window open while you try to paste? Closing the window kills the copy.

Thanks!  Loving Xfce so far!

Yes you're right, if I leave the Edit Launcher window open, the paste works fine in other windows.

So this would be appropriate to file as a GitLab issue?

Thank you - seems the MR is from 2020, needs a rebase to get unblocked?

It seems to be waiting for a developer to release it. Perhaps post if the bug report asking for a release. Which distro and version of Xfce are you using? Are you able to build the package yourself with the patch?

Re: Can't copy launcher command and paste elsewhere

I'm on Mint Xfce 4.16.  Seems there was recent activity on it and it's ready to be merged.
