Issue Details

When I copy-paste data from a text document (.txt) or Excel spreadsheet (.xls) to a channel, DIAdem overwrites the channel description with the string "from Clipboard". How can I disable this behaviour?



  • Open the DIAdem settings by clicking Settings >> DIAdem Settings...
  • In the sidebar select Channel Properties
  • Disable the property Overwrite channel comments
  • Click OK

Additional Information

For important metadata you should consider creating a custom channel property in your TDM file. To create a custom channel property right-click the channel in the data portal and select New >> Custom Property.
