First, congratulations for the work on Amaya 9. I really like the interface.

My biggest problem with Amaya has been the cut and past between different 
applications.

I use KDE (3.2.1) on Linux Suse 9.1. Most of the several previous versions of 
Amaya that I have used have never been able to paste text cut from KDE 
applications such as  browsers (Konqueror) or from kwrite. I have had to use 
OpenOffice as an intermediate step and drag and drop the text into Amaya. 
However with version 9 even this does not work.

With version 9 I have not been able to past any plain text (or any other 
object) from ANY other applications into Amaya. (Cut from Amaya to paste in 
other KDE applications does work).

The second problem is with the File->Open->browse interface. When I navigate 
through the directories and files the selected directory of files 
'disappears' (leaves a blank space). That is it seems to be rendered white on 
white. I have changed the color selection setting but it does not seem to 
apply to file management panels.

regards

David Wilson

With the File->New dialog, if do not select the default 
suggestion /usr/share/Amaya/amaya/New.html and select the browse option I can 
select the directory but there is no place to enter the file name and even 
assuming and it does not assume New.html. I have not found how to open a new 
document except as /usr/share/Amaya/amaya/New.html and then save as XXX in an 
other directory.
