Cut, Copy & Paste
Cut, Copy and Paste in CodedColor follows the rules of the Windows operating system. In order to facilitate the work with linkfiles, an important concept in Catalogs, there are a few additions and a few important things to remember:
The default Copy ( and Paste ( actions differ from Windows, if the Paste target is a Catalog or Print Order folder. In this case, CodedColor will create links to the original files. You can always force a desired behavior, by selecting the appropriate CodedColor action through the (see A below) and (see B below) menu entries.
A.1 Copy Files
Copies the selected files to the clipboard.
Note: If you are changing the Custom Sortorder of your image files, then select another file in the same folder and call after this.
A.2 Copy Original Files
Always copies original files of the selected files to the clipboard. It differs from the above, if some of your selected files are linkfiles. In this case, the original files are copied to the clipboard, not the linkfiles. This is useful, if you want to copy & paste the original images of a Catalog to some other location.
A.3 Copy Image
Copies the bitmap of the last selected image to the clipboard. You can then paste it into any application that can handle bitmaps, like Paintshop Pro or Winword, or open a new Image Editor within CodedColor by selecting .
B.1 Paste Files
Pastes the files from the clipboard into the current folder. Behaves like the Windows Paste, except if the target folder is a Catalog or Print Order. In this case CodedColor will create links to the original files (images).
B.2 Paste Original Files
Pastes the files from the clipboard into the current folder, always using the original files, even if the clipboard contains linkfiles. This is useful, if you did not call , or copied the files to the clipboard from other applications like the Windows Explorer, and you now want to paste the original files into your CodedColor folder.
B.3 Paste Links to Files
Does not paste the original files from the clipboard, but creates links to all files (images) of the clipboard in the current folder. This is also the default action forinto Catalogs and Print Order folders.
B.4 Paste into New Image
Opens an Image Editor window within CodedColor with the bitmap from the clipboard.
B.5 Insert Before
If you have enabled Custom Sorting in the current folder, the previously are moved before the selected file.
Lines marked red show shortcuts, that behave differently depending on the Explorer viewmode.
