Hi Anand,

 

Thanks for your quick reply. I have the issue with Quartus Prime Version 17.0.0 for example. When I open a block diagram/schematic file and I right click copy a DFF symbol for example, when i want to paste it somewhere else into my block diagram/schematic file, right click Paste is in grey color.

 

Best regards,

 

Fabrice

​Hi,

 

We have tried to replicate the scenario on Quartus 17.0 lite. However it worked fine on Quartus 17.0 & 17.1 LITE.

  1. try by reinstalling Quartus 17.0 lite
  2. Or use latest Quartus lite version.

Hi Anand,

 

I have also installed in same computer Quartus 18.1 Lite. And it seems that it does the same thing. I have a colleague which has Quartus 17.0 lite and this copy/paste functionality works.

 

Please, check the print screens which I just did.

 

Thank you in advance for your comments.

 

Best regards,

 

Fabrice

​Hi Fabrice,

 

Copy past operation Works fine in Quartus.

May be problem with Quartus Installation or environments (OS).

 

Try to install it in new pc.

I have the same issue.

Close all the other applications in backgroud,  try again.

Especially the applications in notification area.

I have found a solution to this issue.

cobolzinho.gif

On my system I was running an instance of VirtualBox with the shared clipboard plugin enabled. 

For whatever reason when this plugin is enabled, Quartus does not allow pasting in block diagram view.

When I disable the shared clipboard plugin or close VirtualBox, I am able to copy and paste in Quartus.

 

To disable the shared clipboard in VitualBox go to

Machine --> Settings --> General --> Advanced --> Shared Clipboard --> Disabled

 

Perhaps this issue could also be caused by other programs which interface with the native operating system's clipboard?
