Description

Currently the Copy of Concordance results command exports the concordance table content in a fixed raw text format with:
  • the system character encoding for characters
  • the TAB character as column separator
  • some character as field delimiter
  • some character for line delimiter

Thus tables produced by the Copy of Concordance results command can be different than the tables produced by the Export command which uses the TXM CSV preference parameters.

Some spreadsheet software can thus interpret differently tables produced by the Export command (in a file) and tables produced by the Copy command (in the system clipboard), and produce line bugs in table management.

Solution 1

Get Copy of Concordance results command code closer to the Concordance results Export command.

Make the Copy command of Concordance results code use the TXM CSV preference parameters, so the user can tune the Copy for specific spreadsheet software.

Solution 2

Make the Copy of Concordance results command produce a table in .xslx or .ods format in the clipboard.
