Affected QGIS version:2.12.1 Regression?:No

QGIS is a known cause of the above error in Microsoft Excel; (along with about 20 other programs).

The error creates a dialogue box every time to drag a selection to copy it in Exel when QGIS is running.

Yet I can't find the above in any bug report.

It is making my life very difficult when trying to use QGIS alongside Excel.

  • OS version changed from W8.1 to 8.1
  • Operating System set to Windows
  • Status changed from Open to Feedback

Please post the exact steps to reproduce.

Opening Excel and QGIS 2.12.0 on Win7 pro 64 I can still cut/copy/paste and drag with the mouse within Excel as expected.

Please also try to disable all plugins, it could be a plugin that is blocking the clipboard.
