Just as the title says, you can press copy to clipboard> Read from clipboard on a music scroll and it doesn't paste it.

For you lazy people out there:
IGN is my forum name

I had some free time, so here's exactly how the buttons don't work.

    Have you tried using 'ctrl+c' to copy and 'ctrl+v' to paste?

    I haven't tried anything yet so I don't know if they will work. Just a suggestion to try.

    That just copies and pastes the entire page on one section.

    There are no further steps than a copy and paste into an interface window, there is nothing else they need to know.

    a. What is the issue? (It may also be necessary to explain Why it is considered an issue.)
    b. What steps must be taken for us to recreate the issue?
    c. What do you expect to happen instead?

    You must include visual evidence, such as a screenshot or video.
    a. "Read from clipboard" not functioning properly
    b. Selecting "Copy From clipboard" and then pressing "Read from Clipboard" from the music scroll menu of a not empty music scroll
    c. Expect empty scroll to be filled with contents of clipboard. Incorrectly filled.
    < visual evidence here>

    I'm not getting any issue with this, so I don't have anything else to say.

    Just wanting to add that the text that gets copied using the scroll's copy button copies everything in the scroll. I threw it into a note pad to see if anything was copied, and got the below screenshot. The dump contains trivial information that Mabi won't use when composing, such as section titles, composer name, and song title.
    image

    This is the clipboard format that Mabi can understand:
    image
    Text started with a MML@ followed thereafter by the Melody line. All harmonies were separated by a comma (,) and at the very end a semi-colon (;) was placed. The composition from clipboard function has always been very picky, so what the game exports to the clipboard from an already made scroll should also match this formatting.

    Good job ^ I tested it too and it is indeed non-(instantly)-transferable. If you want to make it transferable, do the MML@, comma, and semi-colon thing. It's probably not gonna get patched, so workarounds like these are basically a permanent function :^)

    The [Copy to clipboard] function on a 'Score Scroll' doesn't 'Auto-Format' the copy for MML Readers. You have to do it manually.

    and... As asserted by @Buffalos , the [Read from Clipboard] function in the 'Composer' relies on the implied format:  MML@ , , , ;

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Use the properly formatted MML below (for example purposes). It's Rank 5, and it's called: "Pieces", by L'Arc-en-Ciel. ☺
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    MML@t96>c+c+16d16l8ec-edc+2&c+c-edc+dc+da2&aa4.a1&a1c+c+.d.c+c+4.c+c+.d.c+c+4.c+c+.d.c+c+4.<ba+4>c+4d4.c+d.e.f+d4.dd.c+.<bag+g+g+g+.>f+.ee4.<gf+.>e.dd4.<f+f.>d.c+c+d16e4&e16n56c+dc+<b4.f+g+f+16e4&e16>f+4.f+4edf+e4.a4ec+ed4.d4c+c-dc+2<abn61a>f+4.f+f+edf+e4ef+16g.f+ef+edda4.aal4ag+aba.al8gfee4dc+4d4g2egabb4b+4g4fedd4ca2ccc-4g4fefg2.aa+a4ea4gfga4.a4gfee4dc+4d4g2egabb4b+4g4fedd4ca2ccc-4g4fefg2.aa+a4ea4gfga2.l4cc-.c.de2.de1<a2l8cegal32>cea>c1&c1,o2a.a8g+2f+.l8f+eb>e4a2.ef+e4.<e2&e>e1l4<a>ea2n32eg+2<g>eg2n30c+f+2c-f+b2n34f+a+2<a2g+2g8>d8g<f+2d8a8>d<f2e>c+e2a2e<el8da>df+a2c+eg+b>e2<c-df+a>d2<<a>eaen49eaedf+a>c+f+2<c+eg+b>e2<c-df+a>d2<e>e<be<eeb>e<f>cfcacfc<g>dgdbdgd<eb>ec-gc-e<b,l1.rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrl8o2a>eaeb+eae<f>cfcacfc<g>dgdbdgdn34fa+>d4<a+f4<a>ea>c+4<ae4<f>cfcacfc<g>dgdbdgd<eb>ec-gc-e<ba>eaeb+eae<f>cfcacfc<g>dgdbdgdn34fa+>d4<a+f4<a>ea>c+4<ae4<f>cfcacfc<g>dgdbdgdn34fa+>d4<a+f4<a>ea>c+4<ae4<f>cea2,;

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If (for example) you only want the Melody via [Read from Clipboard], without the Harmonies; Use the following format:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    MML@t96>c+c+16d16l8ec-edc+2&c+c-edc+dc+da2&aa4.a1&a1c+c+.d.c+c+4.c+c+.d.c+c+4.c+c+.d.c+c+4.<ba+4>c+4d4.c+d.e.f+d4.dd.c+.<bag+g+g+g+.>f+.ee4.<gf+.>e.dd4.<f+f.>d.c+c+d16e4&e16n56c+dc+<b4.f+g+f+16e4&e16>f+4.f+4edf+e4.a4ec+ed4.d4c+c-dc+2<abn61a>f+4.f+f+edf+e4ef+16g.f+ef+edda4.aal4ag+aba.al8gfee4dc+4d4g2egabb4b+4g4fedd4ca2ccc-4g4fefg2.aa+a4ea4gfga4.a4gfee4dc+4d4g2egabb4b+4g4fedd4ca2ccc-4g4fefg2.aa+a4ea4gfga2.l4cc-.c.de2.de1<a2l8cegal32>cea>c1&c1,,,;

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Take note of the 3 commas before the semi-colon at the end of the above example.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Expected Format Examples for Mabinogi Composer's [Read from Clipboard] function:

    MML@Melody , Harmony 1 , Harmony 2 , Song ;

    MML@Melody , Harmony 1 , , Song ;

    MML@Melody , , Harmony 2 , Song ;

    MML@Melody , Harmony 1 , , ;

    MML@Melody , , Harmony 2 , ;

    MML@Melody , , , Song ;

    MML@Melody , , , ;

    MML@ , Harmony 1 , , ;

    MML@ , , Harmony 2 , ;

    MML@ , , , Song ;

    ..etcetera.. ☺

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If there is no Song in the score, a 3rd comma doesn't need to be used, but it can be.

    MML@Melody , Harmony 1 , Harmony 2 ;

    MML@Melody , Harmony 1 , Harmony 2 , ;

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As @Opalthira said, "it's been this way for years.."... (minus the 3rd comma and Song). ☺

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ~ So, in closing;.. It's technically not a bug (nor broken) and it functions correctly (as intended, or as it has since day one - forever ago). ☺

    With that said, it would be nice if the [Copy to clipboard] function performed an 'Auto Format' for our MML Reader (although it was never intended to), but that's a topic for the 'Suggestions' forum, rather than the 'Bugs & Glitches' forum. ~ (Just so we're clear on that point). ☺
