    I'm using the version 2013.3.1202.40

    If a user copies a line (CRTL-C) and pastes it (CTRL-V), there is a problem when one of the column's contents is empty. All contents are shifted “to the left”, simply ignoring the empty column.

    So, if we have something like "Text;;;End" it would be pasted as "Text;End"

    Hello Pavel,

    In order to stop the shift "to the left" you can set the ClipboardPasteMode property of RadGridView to OverwriteWithEmptyValues.

    <telerik:RadGridView Name="xGridView"
                                  ... />

    You can find more information about Copying and Pasting in our documentation articles.

    I hope this helps.

    I think you should add the "Cells" value also to the ClipboardPasteMode attribute, otherwise the paste will not work at all. (This was my experience):

    So this worked for me:

    <telerik:RadGridView Name="xGridView"

                          ClipboardPasteMode="Cells, OverwriteWithEmptyValues"

                                  ... />

    Anyway, thank you for the help Boris!
