Is there a way to copy everything in an event window to later paste anywhere at all?

It seems another VXA-specific limitation... with MZ I could ('copy as text') in a manner that doesn't only paste in another RM window, which seems to be the case in VXA... so, as it is it seems I can only copy to paste everywhere line by line...

Try to press and hold the "Left Shift Button" while you Select Eventcode with the Left Mousebutton.
Works in VX, VX-Ace, MV and MZ, XP not tested.

Than Copy and Paste or "Strg c" and "Strg v"

Now it makes sense. Selecting more than one event command in the event editor.
Yes, I normally select the first one and press shift then down arrow to select more. Or up arrow. Never tried with the mouse.

The problem is after copying, as e.g. I can't do that and then paste in this window... it only allows pasting in RM itself.

It should also allow to copy paste between 2 or more Open Projects.

Pasting it somewhere as Text was not part of the initial Question(Edit: I maybe have missread, not the best in english), but it is possible with MV and MZ but not with VX-Ace, but it doesnt allow you to copy paste it back into eventcommands. its just easier for showing code in Forums.

I would suggest Windows Snipping Tool for easy Pictures of your whole Event Windows, but iam not sure what you try to do.

I'd need to copy it as screenshots would only capture what's visible, and since I use a wordwrap plugin most of the text runs beyond the window.

No one is.

You say blah we say here, you say no - blah, we say here, you say no blah,
Again. I'm done until you give relevant accurate information.

Hello Andar, i just saw you created a lot of helpful thread in the past regarding RPG, genre, game design, etc, etc.

Do you have full collection or list about every useful thread that you made in the past ? I think it would be very useful for me.


Thanks :)
