Copying and Pasting

Post by GarkGarcia »

Hey guys!

Does anyone have any idea on how to copy and paste text from the machine I'm emulating from to the emulated machine?

Do you mean in Mini vMac? or in Other Mac Emulators?

What are your host/guest OSes?

For Mini vMac, you'll want ClipIn and ClipOut from http://www.gryphel.com/c/minivmac/extras/index.html

I'm sorry, I'm not sure I made myself clear...
I want to copy and paste text from my clipboard (the one from my Windows machine) to the MinivMac's one. How do I do so?

The two DAs adespoton pointed to are the ones you want for System 6.
Both have to be added via the Font/DA manager to the System of your boot drive.
The DAs will then be available under the Apple menu.

A working System 6 for MiniVMac II is here, with the DAs in question (3d DL):

Trigger the FKey (command-shift-#) for ClipOut to take the System 6 clipboard and put it in the host OS clipboard. Trigger the FKey (command-shift-#) for ClipIn to take the host OS clipboard and insert it into the System 6 clipboard.

I think the windows key maps to the command key?

Yeah, it's still not working.

I think there might be something wrong with the intalation I did, because I noticed that Clip Out is doing just fine...

For the command-shift-5 and command-shift-6 keyboard shortcuts to work for ClipIn and ClipOut, DAFKEY needs to be installed in the System file. (DAFKEY is a set of simple FKEYs to open items in the Apple menu.)

Yeah guys, I don't think it's related to DAFKEYS. Could it be caused by some sort of compatibility error between miniVmac and Windows 10 or anything like that?

If anyone has any idea on how to fix it or on another method to import my Windows clipboard into System6 or System7 please let me know... :???:
