When I try to copy a verse from e-Sword (using CTRL + C)  I get this error message:

     Error: 20056 "Cannot read or write to the clipboard" (1-1612).

 

I've had version 11.1.0 for some time.  This error started appearing a few weeks ago.

 

I can still copy the verse with a right click and selecting "copy."

I reinstalled Version 11.1.0 from the setup file, but I'm still experiencing the error.

 

I'd like CTRL + C to start working again.  Recommendations appreciated.

Hi John,

I just tested the shortcut key Ctrl + C in e-Sword, and had no issues with it, and pasted the text ( using the Ctrl +V keystroke) without a problem. So, as to what is causing this problem, at a rough guess, it may be your keyboard is not working. Recommend you test it in another program such as the word processor you use and see if you get the same problem. If you do, then you know the issue lies with your keyboard and that you may need to replace it.

 

Trust that this helps you, and let me know how it went.

 

Blessings,

Stephen, if his keyboard was not working, his statement in the original post, would not make any sense.

Hi Jon,

The Ctrl + C error isn't in e-Sword. If a thorough test is done using that keystroke right across the board in other applications which uses text, then that error should come up right across the board of all his applications (programs). Moreover, if the error was in John's copy of e-Sword 11.10, then that error would appear in all copies of that version of e-Sword. But because that is not happening, and it's only localized to his machine.

 

Not only that, but also if he tested the other methods of copying using the Copy menu item in the popup context menu, and Copy button and doesn't get that error using them, then the issue has to be related to hardware. That said, if he does get that error using the other methods of Copy, and that same error appears in his other applications, such as MS Word or whatever he uses, then he has a hardware issue of which the CPU or something else is not registering the command. Even a simple loose connection of the keyboard, I've learned, can cause that error.

 

It would be interesting to know when that error began to occur because John would have used that keystroke many times before it occurred without any problems. So, in order to know how, when and where that began to occur a great deal of more information is needed.

Hi Jon,

Just found out that another possible cause for that error to popup could be a Microsoft update, as to which one, I don't know.

 

Blessings,
