Moving and Copying Text

In addition to using the standard Windows Cut, Copy, and Paste functions, the VLISP text editor allows you to drag text from one location to another within the edit window.

To move text by dragging

  1. Select the text you want to move.
  2. Point anywhere inside the selected area, and press and hold the left mouse button.
  3. Drag the text to the new location.
  4. Release the mouse button.

To copy the text instead of moving it, follow the same steps, but press CTRL before releasing the mouse button in step 4.

You can also take selected text and copy it into a new file. With the text selected, press CTRL + E to display a list of options, and choose Save Block As. VLISP replies by displaying a dialog box for you to specify where you want to save the text.

VLISP uses the Windows Clipboard for all cut and copy operations. Therefore, you can exchange text with any other Windows application that supports these functions. This also means you can copy and paste text between the text editor and the VLISP Console window.

Remember that immediately after moving or copying text, you can change your mind and reverse the action, using the Undo function.
