Copying full contact address

Post by TonyW »

When I saw the feature list for 8.66 I was ecstatic! Here was the one feature I've been wanting for years!

"Full contact address will be copied to clipboard by double clicking on the field's name"

However when I tried it, only the first line of the address is copied to the clipboard.

I am using the portable version. Am I missing something?

Seems to work fine for me. Are you sure you're on latest version 8.66.1? [you can check in the about dialog from the help menu]

As MetalDrop said, it works when double-clicking on the Home in the contact preview at the bottom of the window:

But it copies only the first line when you open the contact in the separate window and double-click on Home there (I don't know if it supposed to copy the full address there, but it'll be nice if it it would):

Thank you for your replies. I've got it working now!

The problem was that it was not 8.66.1 that was installed which is interesting -- when I upgraded from my previous version the download button took me to a webpage that announced 8.66.1 with a download link which I duly downloaded and assumed was 8.66.1 but when I checked on the help dialogue, it was 8.6.1! Then when I then checked for updates and clicked the button, the download happened automatically (rather than being taken to a webpage) and lo and behold, I now have 8.66.1 installed!

I can't tell you how happy I am to have this new long-awaited for feature -- it will make correspondence so much easier!
