    Default Clipboard size limitation

    Search -> select -> right click -> copy the selected results to clipboard as text

    There is size limitation on the number of items. Is there any convenient way to overcome this limitation?

    While you can't easily get around the clipboard text size limitation, you could instead copy the features themselves to the clipboard from the search results dialog, then paste those in a new instance of Global Mapper and then export that to a CSV file. Another thing I could do is add an option to save the text to a file if it is too large. Would that work?

    Thanks,

    Start another instance of GM (start the program twice). Select whatever you want to copy in the first instance. ctrl-c copies (or ctrl-x) cuts the selection from the first instance. ctrl-v pastes the copied (or cut) data into the second instance.

    I see. This will not do the job. What I need is the feature table (the list of objects with their attribute value as a csv table).

    By copy and paste to another GM instance, the objects, including polygon, line, and point will be transferred as is to the other GM instance. But then, the output to csv option will not be able to output the selected polygons and lines attribute value table.

    I suppose either replacing the "copy to clipboard" with "saving to csv", or adding another additional tabe of "saving to csv" are the only options.

    Once you have your objects in another instance, just use File->Export Vector Data to export a CSV file. The latest releases have an option to including area and line features so you can get everything in a CSV file with each feature on its own line.

    Sorry, still not successful. All I need is a table with each object listed in a column with its attribute value in a row, the first row being the attribute name, the same format as the search result. The csv output is not in the format I need.

    That is what the CSV export should get you. How is it different than what you are getting in the search results, other than the ordering?

    Thanks,

    The csv output does not have the <Feature Name>, <Feature Type>, and <Description> fields included compare with the search result clipboard output.
