Describe the steps also share information on Quartus edition & version Used.
ctrl+c & ctrl +v or
right click copy & right click Past in block diagram file works fine.
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.
We have tried to replicate the scenario on Quartus 17.0 lite. However it worked fine on Quartus 17.0 & 17.1 LITE.
- try by reinstalling Quartus 17.0 lite
- Or use latest Quartus lite version.
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.
I have found a solution to this issue.
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?
