View Full Version : How to Cut-N-Paste with OS3.9?
01-29-2006, 02:50 PM
What helper applications do I need to
grab from AmiNet to be able to
Cut-N-Paste? I know that you need to
load some libraries to use RightAmiga-C
to cut and RightAmiga-P to paste.

You do? Never heard of this before...

That's interesting... I thought this was a feature of ROM?
I know that each application has it's own short-cuts but that got me wondering if KingCon or MCX was handling the Cut & Paste.
There is a Clipboards/ directory in Ram Disk: but some apps don't respond to Right-A c/x/p - notably Workbench utilities/GADTools requestors etc.
I find PowerSnap utterly useless. Maybe it doesn't work with MUI or something but whenever I've tried it and paste I get loads of ????????? and nothing else.

I was trying to cut-N-paste from Multiview
into another application. I could not highlight
in Multiview and cut / paste into anything else.
I'll try that PowerSnap for what its worth. What
is KingCon and MCX?

if you configure properly the powersnap it works ok most of the times:) kingcon is an alternative to the standard amiga os shell that you can find in drawer system. shell is a kind of ms-dos (bad words i know...) if you know from pc world. mcx is a commodity. commodities are tools that run at boot time from wbstartup drawer and they adding more functionality to the amiga os. it's something like ''extra tricks''. powersnap is a commodity too. now, mcx is a multi-commodity, that means it can handle-add more than one tricks at boot time but personaly i believe that mcp is better than mcx. download them from aminet both, read carrefully the guides and decide your self what of the tricks you wand and what don't. :-)
i see that you have a ''heavy equipment'' :-)

Yeah for some bizarre reason Workbench has the Clipboard/ in Ram Disk: but most of the programs won't let you highlight text to copy & paste!
I'm not entirely sure what King-Con does but I use it and it makes the Shell much nicer, adding a scrollbar and buffer. MCX is very nice and recently I've set my middle mouse button to cycle screens, which is incredibly useful. Rather than press 'Left-A m' you can just click and hey presto. Good too for games that don't have a screen swapping button and you're too lazy to do the key combo.

Use the "Mark" and "Copy" options in the edit menu of Multiview (there is no paste option though).

@Hyperspeed: i can cycle through screens and with this combination: hold left mouse and pressing right mouse instantly but i don't know what patch-or-commodity does this thing as i run tones of them at boot time :-)
the diference or at least one diference with kingcon is that the shell is not using the standard con: and raw: but these of the kingcon-handler. the command shell/cli is the same, so i think that it gives the shell more functionality, the shell it's self is the same

Wow - it seems there are LOTS of ways to achieve the Cut-N-Paste I was looking for. Thanks for all the help and suggestions !

Multi-CX is less bloated to me and offers much neater functions.
I remember setting the middle mouse button on my Wizard Mouse to be walk-forward in Quake. I could shoot with the left button, walk forward with the middle and jump with the right. My left hand remained free to punch the air every time I axed a PC user to death.
