Copy/Paste in console

Is it possible to use Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V in the console? I made a system to edit text quickly, but it isn’t as quick as I would like it to be if I have to right-click to copy/paste.

Use right click plus copy and paste.

Press Ctrl + Shift + C and Ctrl + Shift + V

This is what I am trying to avoid.

Ctrl+Shift+C opens the chrome dev tools, is there another shortcut?

Sorry, I don’t think so. :shrug:

Does Ctrl+Shift+C work in other browsers? If so, which browsers?

I’ve tried in Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge. They all open up devtools. I dunno about other browsers.

For me, Ctrl Paste (Or CMD) or Ctrl C (Copy) work fine.

What browser are you using? Are you doing it in console?

Google Chrome. Yes I am doing it in the console.

The key combos dont work because some combos interact with the console (like CTRL + C ending the current task)

Is there a way to disable the replit keybind overrides?

Sometimes it works for me and sometimes it does not. If possible, I recommend you just select the text you would like to copy, then right click and click Copy, instead of using your keyboard.

This is what I am trying to avoid.

It might just help you anyway. In some cases, you can copy and paste using the keyboard. In places like Python (I think), it will send a keyboard interrupt command to the console, cause it to diselect the text you wanted copied.

In my case I follow the following:

  • If Copy highlight + Right Click + Copy
  • If Paste Crtl + Shift + V
    You could also use highlight + Right Click + Paste for paste
