Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 131549
Evoluation Cal does not allow Cut and Paste
Last modified: 2014-03-25 20:51:00 EDT
Description of problem:
Cut and Paste an entry in the time slot, allows the entry to be remove
from the time slot but it does not allow pasting. Hence, Ctrl-X works
but Ctrl-V does not.
However, Copy and Paste a hightlighted an entry in the time slot
allows the entry to be pasted to a new time slot. So Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Evolution Cal
2.Create an appointment
3.Click on the time slot of the appointment created (will see a
4.Hightlight the entry by using shift+home or shift+end
5.Ctrl-X then Ctrl-V
Cut is good but paste is not
Cut and paste should work
Affect all locale including en_US
Bug filed upstream.
Need to be in Day View to reproduce.
"Paste" on right-click context menu seems to work (pasting to the time
selected when the rightclick occurs), it's the Ctrl-V keyboard
shortcut that seems broken (also the main menu Edit->Paste item is
insensitive); these fail to work even if you have a blank timeslot
Arguably either (i) when you do a cut with text selected, it should
cut the text, leaving the appointment behind. Currently the whole
appointment is cut.
or (ii) should allow Ctrl-V and main menu Edit->Paste, provided you
have a selected timeslot (or maybe even paste to last location)
Still happening on:

Open the new appointment window which pops up. Now try to paste whatever was
cutin the summary field. It pastes it in the form of a .ics file with all the
BEGINand END, etc. I have tried it in evolution 2.2.1 on Suse 9.3 RC1.
Noticed has mentioned that this bug is fixed.

It works properly with the latest versions.
Confirming this resolution is hard due to Bug#167157. after restarting
evolution, I can see the duplicated (copied) appointment though.
