Right click to paste

Just making a suggestion. Could you add the ability to right click to perform some common tasks like cut, copy and paste? Right now only thing that comes up is about Silverlight.

Hey Kevin, thanks for your great suggestion.

As Reckon One currently runs on Silverlight which doesn't allow right click/edit features. Our developers are working on moving away from Silverlight in the future. Hopefully this will see the ability to copy/paste with right click.

Workaround: If you have something highlighted you can use Ctrl+C & Ctrl+V to copy paste (I just tested this in the invoice section and it worked :) )

Cheers,
Mirko

Hi Mirko,

I like to grab bits from my local files, machine, web etctera an d past into an invoice. Mostly copy fro a previous PDF and paste into a new invoice.

It now just does not work, hate it.

Hi Mirko

1. Hosted
2. Safari 7.1 (Mac OSX 10.9, I will not use firefox or chrome as then I lose a whole new set of usually native functionality. Fall out of these things gets bigger elsewhere when I move from native tested software)

Thanks.

Thanks for your reply Drew. Thank you for all your feedback, I will pass it onto our Development team. At this point in time only IE has direct integration with the clip board the system clipboard.

As a fellow Mac user, I've experienced better performance with Hosted at home since updating to OSX 10.10 Yosemite and inturn Safari 8.0. Still require to use the clipboard button to copy and past into Hosted, but overall it performs better.

Hey Drew, you copy and paste as per normal from the source. To get it into Hosted you click on the blue clipboard icon and paste it into the white box.

The only issue I have is remembering to use Cmnd+V in the input section, and then once copying it from there, Control + V to paste into the invoice etc. As Hosted runs on a Windows platform it looks for MS Keyboard configurations, thus you use Mac keys to paste into the Hosted Clipboard and MS Win keys to paste inside Reckon Accounts.

I know myself, I have trouble copying from some PDFs in general on my Mac. I struggle to copy text from a PDF and import into Pages, Office for Mac or even Edit Text, not sure what the reason for this is. To be honest, I haven't tried it since going to Yosemite, but will try tonight and let you know. Sometimes it might have something to do with the way the PDF is made. I know my Uni used to protect PDF documents, so copy and paste was almost impossible. ^Mirko

Hi Mirko

Thanks for the advise, I'll check it out later when doing some invoicing.

I'll be leaving Yosemity for a while as there are known bugs that affect software my office uses.

Again thanks for taking the time to converse.

Silverlight had right click context support since 2010, it might be worthwhile to consider adding that feature prior to moving away from Silverlight. I don't know how far along the migration process you are at, but usually a migration like this would mean a long wait.

It would be good to copy and paste from MS documents from outside of the QBs.
eg, copy from a word doc to QB or an email to QB.
Older version had this feature.  We seem to be going backwards

Hi Cyril, Again...lol.

This thread is in regards to the new Reckon One product not the Reckon Accounts Hosted (new or old).

In regards to Copy & paste, in Reckon Accounts Hosted... see my reply to your other post.

Hi Kevin, sorry for the late addition to this post.

I can confirm that we are well down the migration path, with all new modules being written in HTML5, as well as the more mature modules being re-written.

Hi Robert,

Reckon One currently uses Microsoft Silverlight. The version of Silverlight being used doesn't support the right click (via mouse) option. Reckon are in the process of moving the Reckon One application away from Microsoft Silverlight to HTML5 (no release/completion date for this task has been confirmed). Once this task is completed the issue of the right click option not working in Reckon One will no longer exist.

Note: This thread relates to the Reckon One application not the Reckon Accounts Hosted application.

Regards,
Scott.

Just an update on this thread. The HTML 5 version of Reckon One is now available. The issue regarding not being able to utilise the right mouse click action is now fixed.
