[ Copy to clipboard from IPython using Windows 7 ]
I am running IPython on Windows 7 and can use the
%paste magic command to paste from the clipboard. However, I cannot copy from IPython to the clipboard. I want to copy code snippets from IPython and paste them back to a text editor.
Anyone know a fix for this?
I have yet to test it on windows, so please tell me if you encounter any issues.
As mentioned by @AdrianRatnapala, you can right-click in the terminal window and select
Mark, mark the code snippets you want to copy, and then right-click (the marked content is copied to the clipboard when you right-click).
A more "permanent way" to use this feature is to right-click on the title bar of the terminal window and choose
Properties. Under the
Options tab, tick the box next to
QuickEdit Mode and save this setting.
A third option is to use IPython's Qt Console. You can use this by entering
ipython qtconsole in the command prompt.
