Issue Details

I'm trying to use the 'Copy Data' function in the Probe Watch Window in LabVIEW. After Copying the data, I do not see it in my clipboard and am unable to paste it into another application.


The 'Copy Data' function in LabVIEW Probe Watch Window copies the data into a LabVIEW memory location. This data can only be used within LabVIEW. To do this, go to a LabVIEW vi block diagram and select edit >> paste. Doing this will paste a constant onto the block diagram that matches the data that was copied in the probe window. 

Additional Information

Copy and Pasting to the Windows clipboard is possible from a front panel control or indicator by using the data operation submenu option.
