Clicky

semfind

I set a specific search to manage my address book:

 Refine
 Type:is:Address Book Person Data
 Locations
 
~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook

Using the [Copy Names] item of [Results] menu I am surprised to have only the first one of all the 1448 lines resulting from this search...

Hope you can help.
 
Thanks
 Alain

Hi!

You need to select the rows you want to copy.

Selecting multiple / all lines leads to the very same result: only one name :-(

Hi Alain,

Could it be the application on the receiving end that ignores all but the first element on the clipboard?
Try pasting to a TextEdit document.

Are you using HoudahSpot 3 or 4?

Do you see the same problem with "Copy as Tab Delimited" and "Copy File Paths"?

Have you tried "Copy Names" on a different search?

Please check /Applications/Utilities/Console.app > All Messages for error messages.

You are right: please see the following.

Try pasting to a TextEdit document. 

It is OK in TextEdit, but don't works in TextWrangler, Microsoft Word 2011 and even NotePad in (Parallels Desktop® 10.1.4) Windows 7 NotePad generic editor...

Are you using HoudahSpot 3 or 4?

HoudahSpot 4.0.3

Do you see the same problem with "Copy as Tab Delimited" and "Copy File Paths"?

Same problem with "Copy File Paths" but not with "Copy as Tab Delimited"

> Have you tried "Copy Names" on a different search?

The same problem occurs: seems related to "Copy Names" and "Copy File Paths"

> Please check /Applications/Utilities/Console.app > All Messages for error messages.

No HoudahSpot message in log files

Diagnostic is done: I am betting (and mainly I hope)
 the multilines clipboard can have a better compatibility with other apps than TextEdit in near futur next version  ;-)

All the best,
 Alain

I use HoudahSpot 4.0.3 quite intensively to detect (and fixe) non Spotlight indexed contacts in my Address Book.

To use the nice feature [Result]>[Copy Names] in this version "actually", I mean pasting in TextWrangler including right converted diacritic characters, this small piece of AppleScript code proves to be useful:

# HoudahSpot 4.0.3 [Result]>[Copy Names] (more) portable clipboard content

tell application "TextEdit"

   activate

   make newdocument

   delay 0.5

   tell document 1

      tell application "System Events"

          keystroke "v" using command down

          delay 0.5

          set the clipboard to "!"

          keystroke "a" using command down

          delay 0.5

          keystroke "c" using command down

          delay 0.5

      end tell

      close saving no

   end tell

quit

end tell

set clipb_data to (the clipboard as «class ut16»)

set the clipboard to clipb_data

"clipb_data => " & (count of clipb_data)

 
Hope this help,
 Alain

Hi!

I have a beta of HoudahSpot 4.0.4 which should work around this bug.
