Topic: How Do I copy From Serial Monitor Screen (Read 926 times) previous topic - next topic


Been exploring Walter Anderson's excellent IR Analyzer sketch to better understand Infra Red Remotes.

Minor problem - the sketch dumps received IR Codes to Serial Monitor screen but after I select the serial data in the Serial Monitor Window with my mouse (left click & wipe) there is no Copy feature so I can post the code elsewhere to examine if further. I was expecting to be able to do a mouse "right click" to select COPY.
Any help appreciated.


ctrl + c = copy

standard windows shortcut since the late 80's

You don't say what operating system you are using.

If you are opposed to Osgeld's suggestion to the standard keyboard conventions, you could also use a different terminal program, perhaps one that supports logging.

Osgeld gets the prize.... Ctrl C works of course.
I'm running version 1.0.3 on Windows 7 & no right mouse click are available as shown on Nick's Mac screen.

Thanks team for the quick response
