Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

What do you mean by AS400 clipboard?

Do you mean in ops navigator or a 5250 emulator or something else?

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

//////////////////
We’re not sure what you mean by clipboard but one place with an unusual interface is the Cliet Access
5250 screen. This does not use Ctl-x, Ctl-c, or Ctl-V. On these you must use the Edit/Copy and Edit/Paste
or the icons for edit / paste.

This is a WINDOZE function.
You can modify the Keyboard file to emulate these functions.
From a 5250 screen, Edit > Preferences > Keyboard > Customize button.
“click” ‘V’ keyboard button. Lower right panel with Ctrl should have ‘[edit-paste]‘.
Or create your own.

thanks PSMurray – I don’t know if that’s what the user wanted but can use it?
Couldn’t do that on the real 5250! +

    If you think back - ALt-E, C and ALt-E, P are the original 'standards' which Mickeysoft have altered to Ctr-v and Ctr-C Anyone but MS would have used Ctr-P for 'paste' - why the heck did they invent 'v' ? just because it's next to C on the keyboard?? Anyway - if you want pastes of screens use ALt-E, A Alt-E,c to get all the screen into the PC notepad, then Ctrl-V to paste, and you get a nice character view of your screen - if you set up a macro in Openoffice, Wordperfect - or Word, iif you must, then it sets the font to courier at 9 point, puts a box around the inseet, and shades the background to 5% grey - r whatever colour. Saves about a gazillion bytes of MS bitmap, and is highly readable to boot.

    Hi, I guess Ctrl-P was already taken for Print.... but there must have been better options than Ctrl-V - how about Ctrl-I for insert? Regards, Martin Gilbert.
