"Can't open clipboard" error
« on: November 15, 2021, 04:11:17 PM »
Maybe this is more of a Windows problem than a PFE problem but here it goes.

When I automatically output images in PFE, I often run into a "can't open clipboard" error from the "ImagesSaveImagesToFiles" routine that stops the process. I can restart the output but it always restarts at image #1 and will fail at a different image with each try. After multiple retries, I may make it to the end. I feel it has gotten worse in Windows 10.

Anybody here has had this problem too and could resolve it?

I've seen this issue also in years past, but not recently, at least in Windows 7. But you might check this link:
