GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 622049
Copy-Paste doesn't work if the source is closed before the paste
Last modified: 2017-07-31 12:41:15 UTC
When you quit Tomboy, you lose any data that was on the clipboard. You can find more information about this bug and how to fix it at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/ClipboardPersistence.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy text from a Tomboy note.
2. Paste it to another window, this works as expected.
3. Quit Tomboy entirely, including panel applet.
4. Try to paste, there is now nothing in the clipboard.
From the wiki:
Pure Gnome applications that use standard features like TextViews are automatically supported.
Applications that use GTK+ features can provide persistence by
setting set_can_store on clipboard contents whenever they gain ownership of the clipboard
saving clipboard contents on quit with gtk_clipboard_store

Patch to close 622049 in Tomboy: save clipboard on quit
Here's a patch that works for me as applied to the current Ubuntu Lucid release of Tomboy.
To clarify: the patch I attached to comment 2 was tested on a build of Tomboy 1.2.1-0 for Ubuntu 10.04.
The Tomboy team has moved from GNOME Bugzilla to GitHub for bug reports and feature requests:
Closing this report as NOTGNOME as part of Bugzilla Housekeeping (bug 781054) to keep tasks in one place. Please feel free to transfer this task to GitHub if this task is still valid in a recent Tomboy version.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
