First time here? Check out the FAQ!

paste with <cr> shows "error executing command .internal.edit.paste"

I just upgraded to on MacOS. If I do the following while editing a python source file:

click three times with left-mouse-button to select an entire line hit Ctrl-C to copy the selection hit Enter to advance one line hit Ctrl-V to paste the selection

Wing presents a modal dialog with the message "Error executing command .internal.edit.paste"

I would have noticed this if it happened with previous versions.

This has been fixed in version

It was a bug where it's failing to auto-indent the pasted code after it has been placed. It occurs with certain things that contain a blank line before a 'def', 'class' or decorator is found in the pasted text.

A work-around would be to select the pasted code and Use Source > Indentation > Indent or Source > Indentation > Outdent. It's the Indent to Match function that's got the bug.

Sorry about that!
