Issue when copying a Font from Windows Fonts directory through Everything

Post by VarunAgw » Wed Aug 07, 2019 9:58 am

OS: Windows 1903 x64

How to reproduce:

1. Search for a font in Everything
2. There will be many results from C:\Windows\Fonts\ directory
3. Copy one of such font directly from Everything by pressing Ctrl+C
4. Now open Explorer, and navigate to some folder
5. Press Paste.

Explorer will crash now. In some case, it crash even while during navigation.

Does the same happen if you do 1. & 2. using Windows Explorer itself, & a second Windows Explorer for 4.?

Everything 1.4 appears to be using a bad Shell IDlist Array on the clipboard.

The issue appears to be only related to the C:\Windows\Fonts folder.
I was able to reproduce the issue on Windows 7 x64 and Windows 10 x64.
The issue also occurs when dragging fonts from Everything.

It has been fixed for the next major version.

Thanks for the bug report.

Windows 8.1 Pro Update 1 (x64)
Everything (1.4.1.935 (x64))

Confirmed. But it neither crashes, nor copies font file from Windows\Fonts folder.

Also there is no "Copy" context menu on font file.

Workaround:

- Select your font(s) in Everything
- Menu:Edit > Copy to Folder ...

The \Fonts\ folder is shown in Explorer through an extra "shell layer" (for lack of a better word): you don't see the actual files as you would in - for example - CMD. Comparable with \$Recycle.bin.

Everything sees the 'raw' filenames.
