Many GUI fields do not allow pasting of text



Many GUI fields do not allow pasting of text, which is forcing me to “dumb down” my encryption passwords. This is not a good idea! I want encryption passwords to be long and complicated (not easy to guess), but lack of cut/paste is forcing me to make the encryption passwords shorter and easier to type.

This is a big deal for me. Can this be resolved? I see this in at least the encryption password fields and the e-mail password fields. Cut/paste should work everywhere! It does work in some fields (like shared key fields when entering cloud access data).

Please let me know if I can do anything to resolve this, thanks.


This is a limitation of wxWidgets. I’ll try to fix this after releasing 2.1.0.
