Attachments via Clipboard [message #42824] Sat, 09 February 2008 20:54 Go to next message

Hi,

I just wanted to attach a patch to a Bugzilla via clipboard and I found
that it is not obvious at what time exactly the clipboard data is read.
Wouldn't it be better to read it right after the first step of the
attachment wizard and display the attachment preview at that time?

The reason that I stumbled across this is that I tried to copy&paste an
attachment comment as well - and got completely confused ;-)

Cheers

Data from the clipboard actually read upon wizard is opened, so you
can safely copy/paste comments after that.

The preview page can be probably moved before comment/description
page. I guess the current reasoning is that preview is completely
optional, so it sort of makes sense to have it at the end and you could
Finish wizard without looking at the preview. However in some cases
forcing user to look at the preview may save him from silly mistakes.

regards,
Eugene
