Clipboard: WYSIWYG copy mode ?
« on: March 14, 2012, 05:03:55 pm »
Is it possible to copy the selected text and have Slick copy everything ?

Including:
  • line numbers
  • Hex
  • Line hex
  • View specials
  • highlights

?

Don't know if you can get line numbers and other objects, but you can get formatting by selecting RTF & HTML in "Tools > Options > Editing > Selections".

Right, that allows you to have slick include the basic coloring information, but it still doesn't include the "extras" as listed below.

For example, if I want to paste a snippet of code into an email it would be really handy if I could include the line numbers, or the highlights that I've added.
Lately I've been resorting to screen shots, but this isn't very nice since then it is just a picture with no text.

@jporkkahtc:
I'm using small helper macro commands (on cmdline) for this purpose:
Have a look at this old posting. Maybe it's sufficient.
AFAIK the info/data you describe is not directly accessible.
You could write a macro buiding up a (temp) buffer formatted as needed to finally copy it to clipboard, though..
