pasting outside Consed?

Post by cjones » Tue Feb 05, 2013 2:42 am

We've (re-)figured out the finicky copy/paste sequence for using Search for String in Consed, but haven't been able to figure out how to copy consensus sequence and then paste it in another application (e.g. a web browser). Am I correctly remembering that this is possible, or am I hallucinating?

Unix copy/paste is complicated. There is an X11 preference to try to keep the X11 "pasteboard" synchronized with the mac clipboard. Check the X11 preferences... "pasteboard"

of course for the consensus there is a work-around: export the consensus to a file and open with TextEdit then copy/paste.
