Summary0000940: Copy Image Data to Clipboard no longer works as expected
DescriptionI am sure this worked before, but not any longer. I use geosetter for tagging scanned images (negatives, slides, etc), and sometimes need to copy the metadata from one image to another in particular "taken date". Just to take one example; I have scanned, labelled, tagged and geotagged a film taken in 1986, then later discover that something is wrong with an image, and want to rescan it. The rescanned image starts off untagged with a 2012 taken date. I therefore copy the image from the old scan to the clipboard and copy from the clipboard to the newly scanned image. I have not checked all fields but taken date does not get copied to the clipboard and is therefore not available to copy from the clipboard.
TagsNo tags attached.

The date and time fields are no normal edit fields. As far as I know you can only copy the data from normal edit fields to the clipboard. Therefore I assume that this never worked.

Did you maybe check the option "Timezone only"? Please see attached screenshot.

I am pretty sure it used to work. I had a session last year redigitising some of my slides, and this was the method I used to transfer the metadata from the original scans to the new scans.

Yes I know about not checking timezone only. When I copy image data to the clipboard and then try to paste, everything is greyed out except "object name" and "caption"

I have determined now what the problem is. For some reason the images that I am working with contain "date time values without a timezone".
This results in the time not being copied to the clipboard.
I discovered this by asking Geosetter to set a star rating and it complained about lack of timezone.
After setting timezone, I can now copy and paste time from clipboard.
Sorry for wasting your time and thanks for your responses.

But of course it should also be possible to copy the date if it does not contain a time zone. Maybe this is a bug. I will test it...

Copying of taken date should now also be possible with empyt time zone value...
