Environment

Reflection Desktop (including Pro, for IBM, or for UNIX and OpenVMS) 16.0 or higher
Reflection 2014
Reflection Pro 2014
Reflection for IBM 2014
Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS 2014
Reflection for IBM 2011
Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS 2011
Reflection Standard Suite 2011


Situation

Can not copy then paste a "range" of data in a host session.  Attempting to paste large amounts of data from the Windows clipboard across multiple fields and across multiple host pages is failing.

Resolution

If using Reflection Desktop 16.0:
        Upgrade to Reflection Desktop 16.0 SP1 HF17 or higher.  (16.0.478)
This change is not included in any release of Reflection Desktop 16.1 but will be in a future Reflection Desktop release.

The ability to copy, then paste a range of data (Paste Range), has been added to Reflection Desktop and allows users to paste large amounts of data across multiple fields and across multiple host pages.  This feature can be accessed by copying a large amount of data to the Windows clipboard and then going to Edit | Paste Range in the Reflection session window.

A HotFix (HF) for Reflection Desktop is a cumulatively built product update, intended for limited distribution, which addresses specific customer issues and enhancement requests; outside the regular Development release cycle. It is only available to Micro Focus customers with current software support and maintenance contracts, and only after contacting Micro Focus Customer Support directly.  A HotFix undergoes limited stability and quality testing and is intended for quick release to address specific product issues and should not be deployed to production environments without thorough testing.  It is recommended to upgrade to a full-release or a Service Pack version of Reflection Desktop when it becomes available.
