PVCS Version Manager 8.6.1




Following an upgrade from VM 8.5.3 to 8.6.2 it was noticed that the Copy option is no longer available following a Get or Checkout operation with the Web Client. (Also applies to VM 8.6.1)


As a workaround, select the text in the results windows and use the browser's Copy feature.

(In VM 8.6.0 and older the results dialog was a Java applet requiring a dedicated solution to be able to copy the text, which resulted in the Copy button. As of VM 8.6.1, the results dialog is rendered as HTML, supporting standard browser text copying.)

When using the Desktop Client, the option continues to be present under the Details button.
