Using the IdeaVim plugin with no extra configuration. I select text (say, using the command vw to select a word) and copy it to the system clipboard with the command "+y
I can paste that into some Windows applications, such as notepad and notepad++ but it will not paste into other applications such as Outlook or this browser RichText box. Generally, nothing happens, although in some applications I get an incorrect paste, such as a paste of the background of the text. For example if I paste into this richtext box, I get a result that looks like the background of the selected text. ( a black rectangle).
I inspected the clipboard content by using the .Net API for it. The content created by Pycharm/IdeaVim reports that it holds the data in the following available formats:
Rich Text Format
My assumption is that the content for one or more of the rich formats is malformed. A client application attempts to use the content in, say, Rich Text or HTML format, and it fails. My own inspection tends to confirm this. I inspect the "html" format content, and it's like this:
<html><head><meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"></head>
(line breaks added)
Clearly, there is html formatting but no content. My clipboarded content should appear in the body tag.
