I just upgraded to TCC 11 from 4NT and I have noticed a few differences that are really bugging me in the way copy and paste works.

1. In 4NT, I can use the mouse to create any size box I want over the text I want to copy. Essentially column type selection. TCC doesn't do this. Is there a way to make it do this?

2. When I copy a selection of text from the TCC window, all the carriage returns are dropped. When I paste the line of text, I get one big long line that I have to edit and put all the returns back in. Is there a way to fix that?

3. In 4NT, after marking some text, I can just hit enter to copy it. In TCC, I have to hit Cntl Ins. Is there a way to use enter like 4NT does?

Thanks,
Rusty

See the help topic "Highlighting and Copying Text".

I presume you're running TCC in a Take Command tab window. (If you're in a
standalone TCC window, all of the cut & paste operations are the same as
4NT.)

Hold down the Ctrl key while dragging the mouse.

Take Command will not append the lines unless you hold down the Ctrl key
while selecting Copy or Paste.

No. But you can use Linux-style selection, which will copy the text when
you release the left mouse button.
