paste all after multiple copy commands
« on: September 19, 2017, 12:30:23 pm »
I would like to be able to do a series of copy commands, then paste all of them in one go.  e.g. by selecting multiple items in the clipboard window, then copying them all.

Perhaps I am misunderstanding what you are asking for, but wouldn't the CTL+SHIFT+C (or CTL+SHIFT+X) feature, which appends a selection to the clipboard, do this for you?

You're right.  It does exactly what I want.  I didn't know it existed.  Thanks.

Actually it turns out it's not completely what I needed but the following macro does the job.

_command void append_word_to_clipboard() name_info(',')
{
   select_whole_word();
   append_to_clipboard();
}
