Been trying this for a few days now and i'm thinking its a bug in the present release. I often use the copy table function to do some quick data audits via Excel. Ever since installing 2.51.4885.543 64-bit (October 2017) this function has stopped working.
Presently if I select 'Copy Table', then the "Working On It" message appears as normal. When this message disappears, my clipboard is unchanged. If i paste in Excel, whatever was previously in my clipboard is still there.
Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!
In addition to not being able to copy a table.....
I'm not sure if it is related, but when trying to select tables in the query editor, it appears that a single click on a table on the left hand menu window activates a "drag" function. Even though the left mouse button is not held, the selected table then sticks with the mouse pointer and is dragged across the screen wherever the mouse goes. The only way to release the table is to return the mouse pointer to the original position and click the mouse again to release the table.
Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this in the Oct17 release query editor ?
Is there any update on the original bug fix from 10-10?
