SecureCRT provides you with a number of ways to copy and paste to and
from the terminal screen. One option, Use Windows copy and paste
hotkeys, allows you to use familiar Windows copy and paste
keystrokes in the terminal window.
In most cases, programmers, Emacs users, and others who work in their
terminal window all day need to have Use Windows copy and paste
hotkeys turned off so that they can send control sequences
like CTRL+A, CTRL+C, CTRL+F, and CTRL+V to the remote. Use Windows
copy and paste hotkeys is turned off by default.
When you turn on the Use Windows copy and paste hotkeys
option, these key sequences will have their standard Windows meanings.
This is especially useful if you are accustomed to using Windows commands.
To enable the CTRL+C, CTRL+V, CTRL+A, and CTRL+F accelerator keys for
copy, paste, select all, and find, respectively, follow these steps:
1. Select the Terminal / Emulation / Mapped Keys category
in the Session Options dialog.
2. Select the Use Windows copy and paste hotkeys option.
3. A message box will appear with the following warning:
WARNING: Turning on Use Windows copy and
paste hotkeys will disable your ability to send CTRL+C, CTRL+V,
CTRL+A, and CTRL+F to the remote host. Most UNIX users should leave
this option off.
4. Click on the OK button on the Warning dialog.
5. Click on the OK button at the bottom of the Session
Note: SecureCRT's default copy and paste hotkeys,
CTRL+SHIFT+C (copy) and CTRL+SHIFT+V (paste) can be used whether or
not the Use Windows copy and paste hotkeys option is enabled.
You can read more about different ways to copy and paste text to and
from the terminal screen in the SecureCRT application Help.
