  • As of now, emacs will only let me paste text that is cut/copied from text within its on script. How can I copy text from Matlab and paste it onto emacs script? Sno5 18:11, 17 September 2011 (EDT)
    • You should just be able to left-drag to select the text in the MATLAB window, then go to the emacs document and middle click where you want it to go. Is that not working? DukeEgr93 18:20, 17 September 2011 (EDT)
      • As of now, I am using a laptop cursor. Is there another way to get around it? Sno5 21:12, 17 September 2011 (EDT)
        • You're probably going to have to show me what you are talking about there. PC or Mac? DukeEgr93 21:22, 17 September 2011 (EDT)
          • I am have having the same issue, in that I am on a laptop (mac) and have no center button. The clipboard for emacs only seems to contain text copied from within emacs, not anything copied in MATLAB. Mrt19 23:39, 31 January 2012 (EST)
            • Can you right-click or hold-click to get the context menu, then select copy, then paste into emacs? DukeEgr93 17:19, 1 February 2012 (EST)
  • I came across an error in my EMACS code so I pressed X in PuTTY to quit the error. Subsequently, when I use PuTTY to invoke code to run EMACS (ie: emacs lab2.tex &) the code of the EMACS program is displayed on the PuTTY command line instead within a new window. Is there anyway to remedy this? Sno5 21:20, 17 September 2011 (EDT)
    • That generally sounds like you didn't have XWin running - emacs ran in its non-graphical mode because it couldn't send graphics to your screen. DukeEgr93 21:22, 17 September 2011 (EDT)
  • Is it possible to print the code directly from the emacs application, to ePrint? Py22 (talk) 07:41, 5 September 2013 (EDT)
    • It is - just use "Print Buffer" in the File menu. DukeEgr93 (talk) 18:30, 25 August 2014 (EDT)
