To use the Cut, Copy, or Delete commands, you must first select a block of text with the mouse, the keyboard, or with the Select All command, below. If you have enabled Linux-style selection, the block will be copied to the clipboard automatically when you release the button.

 

For more information on copying text see Highlighting and Copying Text.

 

Copy

Copies selected text from the command line or scrollback buffer to the clipboard.

 

Paste

Copies text from the clipboard to the command line. If the text you insert contains a line feed or carriage return, the command line will be executed just as if you had pressed Enter. If you insert multiple lines, each line will be treated like a command typed at the prompt. Paste will check to see if the Ctrl + Shift keys are down, and if so it will insert a " & " between lines of a multiline paste. Alternately, you can set AppendCommandLines=YES in your TCMD.INI and a Ctrl+paste will insert " & " instead of the default " ".
