[REBOL] help!! image => clipboard:// WAS{Re: Re: Ready for REBOL/Core 2.6?}

> > Will the next release of /View support binary data via clipboard:// ? > > Image data ? Possibly. The problem is that this is highly
platform-dependent. Holger PLEASE: Yes, I realize RT leans towards an all-or-nothing [platform neutral] policy. The deep Catch-22 is that for desktop-type interactions, ie: people using mice, 'some is waaay better than 'none. Win32/MacOSX/Linux/others [ roughly that order] IMO, /View's image built-in graphics processing is of trivial use unless desktop apps can integrate well with people's other workflow environment. That means cut'n'paste. Since 15++years, cut'n'paste between media software is fully expected, with Drag'n'drop catching up solidly in past 6 years. CRTL [MacCMD] + Z | X | C | V functions are one of the implicit cornerstones of GUI computing. It's an individal choice whether or not to use mouse, menu or buttons. Any decent tool offer redundancy sensibly. For me, without image clipboard capability, /View has no real future. It's a deal breaker [not weaving but drwoning]. I am sorry to be so dramatic, but have been struggling with this for issue a while now. I can'tsee any way round it. I hope others will express their opinions. regards ./Jason
