Copy to clipboard

I recently upgraded to version 2022.3 (4077) on a Windows 11 machine.

When running a report and using the copy to clipboard function I am getting spurious characters (£ ) preceding the figures when I paste into MS Excel (365 version).

I know I can use find/replace to get rid of them. I am wondering why they have appeared and if there is something I can do to remove them?

    It’s because Java changed the default to utf8. I’ve already requested that the developer apply some magic (called a BOM) to the copy. The fix might appear in the next preview. Let’s see.
