Copy and Pasting into MPLAB-X


Does anyone have experience with Microchip MPLAB-X software? Customer is having issues copying source code from a PDF and pasting it into an assembly file. He says that when he pastes the code it loses all the format and won’t assemble.

Edit: Also, I found this post from 2011 on Microchips’ Forum (“Wrapped Code does not copy/paste into editor correctly”) but wasn’t sure if it was applicable to the MPLAB-X IDE. Would a simple paste into notepad be the fix?



That’s pretty normal with pdf’s. It’s not directly related to MPLAB-X, as other applications such as word/notepad++ will also see the issue. Some PDF software tools do better, but usually it’s hit and miss.
