Thanks Tristan. ?What you say makes sense. ?I was expecting too much.
I guess I could work around it by making my new project the same
format then changing it just before saving it, right?

Lol, you did not expect too much, I came up shorthanded ;-)

but yeah I will make that use-case impossible and show
a dialog explaining why... what you should do is first convert
the project, then copy in objects from the converted project
(or just work with the converted project as is).

Guys !

? Eeek you got me ! well, I can frankly say up to this moment
that I did not anticipate this use case.

Im going to call it a bug and the fix at least for now will
be to disallow such copy/pastes across projects with different

To shed some light: there are 2 aspects which make the format
differ, some (most) objects are only loaded/saved differently
(which is why this might work for Scott), in many corner cases
though, the actual data representing the UI differs (take
for example, the internal image of an imagemenuitem vs
the builder format's "image" property).

For object conversion at copy/paste level we would need
to introduce a per-class backend function to handle conversions
at the object level, Glade currently only has a conversion
routine for each widget catalog and only converts when the
whole project is converted.

It would be nice having it work the right way, although I
dont have the time for that now...

Hi -- as part of a project to migrate from libglade to GtkBuilder, I
am using glade-3 (Glade 3.6.3) as a tool. ?I'm trying to do the

1, startup glade-3 and open the current libglade-format file
2. select a widget and copy (or cut)
3. create a new glade file (Ctrl-N) and set it to GtkBuilder 2.12
4. Paste the widget I copied from the old file

WHen I do this, ?a widget gets pasted alright, just not the one I
copied! ?Is this expected behaviour or a side effect of copying from
libglade format and pasting into GtkBuilder format?
