I noticed this a while ago but thought it was an issue with Oracle Forms rather than Toad but a colleague has raised it with me today since upgrading from 12.10 to 12.12…
If you write a statement with carriage returns and then copy it into a plain text editor, it loses those carriage returns (I was writing and copying statements into the record group query section of Oracle Forms but it can just as easily be Notepad)
In Notepad becomes:
Select SysdateFrom Dual;
But if I paste it into Notepad++ and then recopy it to my clipboard and paste it into Notepad, it becomes:
Back in 12.10, this didn’t happen - the formatting was retained but from 12.11 onwards the behaviour is different.
I have “Copy text in rich text format” checked in both 12.10 and the latest beta.
