TOPIC: Feature request for cut and paste
#238
Feature request for cut and paste 13 Years ago  
Would it be possible to add a configuration option that would enable a feature that, when there is text highlighted on the TTY window, a ^C would automatically "Cut" insted of sending a ^C to the remote host? I get caught out many times sending a break signal to my host when I am quickly cutting from the terminal to my windows machine.

Re: Feature request for cut and paste 13 Years ago  
This comes up from time to time, so I answer it again here...

Most telnet and ssh users expect ctrl-c and ctrl-v to be sent to the host to act as specific signals to cancel programs and such... Unfortunately, this conflicts with the default Windows definitions of copy and paste. You have a couple of alternatives:

1. Use ctrl-insert and shift-insert as copy / paste. These were the Windows shortcuts for copy/paste before ctrl-c/ctrl-v and still work in most applications.

2. Use the context menu (right-click) for copy and paste

3. Modify the keymaps so ctrl-c/ctrl-v will be copy/paste. Open the default.cskmp file in a notepad (it's in the keymaps directory under the directory where you installed AbsoluteTelnet) There are comments in this file that explain how to do this. Basically, you uncomment two lines and comment out two others.

Hope this helps....

Hi Brian,

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll give the options a try. To be honest, the problem is actually me. When I am typing I'm not thinking about what keys I'm pressing, its kind of automatic and I'll have to get used to an alternate keymap. What I was thinking was more on the lines of: If there is text highlighted and you press ^C then it is assumed a cut, otherwise send the character to the host. I'm not sure what a good solution would be for a paste; there probably isent one other than the alternate keymap or using the ALT-Insert.
