Writing this in case someone else encounters this problem.
The keyboard shortcuts for copy/paste/select all were not working on a Qt app I had written in Python with PySide. I tried it on the input fields of the PySide examples and got the same result. On Windows, CTRL+C, CTRL+V, etc work as expected - but nothing on OSX.
I was running the following configuration:
- OSX 10.7.5
- Python 2.7.1 (32-bit)
- PySide 1.1.0
- Qt 4.7.4
The designs worked as expected on Windows and in the QtDesigner on OSX, but when executed in Python, nothing. It’s a small but annoying problem. The worst part was not finding any information on Google or Stackoverflow that helped. I resorted to hopping onto IRC. I sent some test files to a friendly person there who exclaimed “it works for me!”. Great…
Updating to PySide 1.1.1 fixed the problem. But in the process this forced me to update to Qt 4.8.0 and Python 2.7.3 (64-bit).
