in thread How to "Set" unicode text to Win32::Clipboard?

Thanks, yes, I saw that in the doc about CF_TEXT; but the same doc also states that CF_UNICODETEXT is a constant that's "not recognized by Win32:Clipboard," which is untrue. So I was hoping the doc was wrong here, as well, and that there was an easy way around the issue.

Options 2 and 3 are more than I care to dig into right now. But since I'm using Win32::GuiTest I might also look into using its WMSetText method to write the text directly to the textarea, instead of going through the clipboard. Wish me luck!

Thanks again,
-Phil

    Unfortunately, WMSetText doesn't work like I thought it would with the text in the edit window. However, I've been able to work around the problem by saving the marked-up text to a file and causing the other program to load that file, instead of going back through the clipboard. It's ugly (the open file dialog box flashes on momentarily -- yuck!), but it works.
