copy and paste

We too use this feature of the GUI client all the time using CTRL-C and CTRL-V.
Either from one Pro-IV session to another, inbetween applictions in the same session, and to/from other windows applications. It's neat, and is a real boost to our users.
As long as the cursor is on the field, it should copy/paste ok.

copies only the current field, there's got to be a way to highlight an area, lets say the columns on a paging screen (even display only fields) and copy them.

The down side to this is that when this is enabled, delete mode works differently - pressing F7 will delete the record at the current line,
you can no longer enter delete mode, select a group of records and F3 to accept.

You should be looking at the smooth paging feature in 5.5 by using the scroll type standard, allow selection and
highlight properties. You will be able to select a range or colums/rows and copy to the clipboard.
Additioanlly by setting the application.RightClickMenus property you will be able to action all this with the mouse.
The clipboard contents are compatible with MS Excel and can be pasted direct to a spreadsheet.
N.B the next release of Kernel/Client has some fixes in the smooth page area mainly around the scroll bar navigation.
This should be released soon - post QA etc

in any case, try using PUTTY .
press the the left button , highlight the text and it is copied.
with a 3-button mouse the middle one pastes.
atleast thats the way we've used putty for years.
to get putty, google 'putty download' . save it to desktop.
let me know if you need help configuring it.

time, we just resorted to using the green screen for pasting or one-line-at-a-time via gui.
