Talk:Copying text from a terminal

From ArchWiki

A cheatsheet for common emulators: "no" entries factual accuracy

The “no” entries in the table are often based on testing the emulator with its default configuration and no extensions installed. It’s possible that some false negatives exist in the cheatsheet because of that. If additional steps are required to use some feature, mark it either as “yes” ({{G|yes}}, available by default, but not obvious), or “possible” ({{Y|possible}}, available via extensions or configuration), and add a proper description in Copying text from a terminal#Special cases. -- 10:22, 12 February 2016‎ Mpan

So, do we want a section, or a "Notes" column? Having both seems a bit redundant, and for urxvt's Ctrl+Alt+C, you can add a note to Copying_text_from_a_terminal#urxvt. -- Alad (talk) 09:38, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
I believe Notes should left for short notes (like alternative key bindings), and Special cases for longer descriptions. Especially those that require additional configuration or packages. --Mpan (talk) 09:42, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

What does Select mean? ― Ubone (talk) 08:10, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

The currently selected text. --Mpan (talk) 08:30, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

vim visual mode

Could this article be expanded by info on how to copy text from vim in visual mode? I am using konsole. When vim is in VISUAL mode the shortcut is not working. Also, in the window menu I can see that this action (copy text) is inactive. I was unable to do it. So I just disabled visual mode as a workaround. Ashark (talk) 18:40, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

Maybe you just need to disable Vim#Using the mouse? — Lahwaacz (talk) 21:01, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
