Clipboard colors error

Post by Drahken » Wed Dec 17, 2008 9:39 pm

In both 1.95.2 & 1.95.4 (haven't tried any other 1.95.x versions), when I copy an image to the clipboard from paint shop pro & then paste it into xnview, the colors get washed out (the same way they do if you save an image with the color subsampling set to high). This never happened in versions prior to 1.95.x, and this doesn't happen when I paste the same image into any other imaging program.

This is what the image is supposed to look like:

This is what it winds up looking like:

While most of the image looks ok, you can really see the problem when you look at the colored squares.

Lot of clipboard related bugs. Although, I see most of those are related to 1.93.x, while this one is with 1.95.x (it doesn't exist in 1.94.x, I don't have 1.93.x here to test with).

In 1.95, i use the CF_BITMAP format, and no more the CF_DIB format. I have problem with clipboard from MSword. Could you send me your email by PM to send a test version?

Ok, but now a problem with MSword clipboard :-(
Here i use CF_DIB as default, for MSword i use CF_BITMAP (because CF_DIB is not good)...
