Being able to copy directly to the console instead of having to type in the commands.
I see if saying shipped, but I don't actually see anyway to PASTE anything in the console as of almost a year later. Was this taken back out? Is the UI just completely not obvious?
Ok easy on the anger and entitlement everyone, do are not violating your human rights. But yeah, DO implement this feature ASAP please!
This is really an embarrassment. The entire engineering team at DO should be ashamed of themselves. Have a modicum of pride in your work.
I noticed that copying worked for short strings, like passwords and commands. When I needed to enter a new SSH key in authorized_keys, the pasted string (right click and paste) ended up being just gibberish. I found out that i needed caps lock ON (because it made the capital letters small, and the small ones capital when I pasted) and I copied 19 letters at a time, and it worked like a charm. Still wish I just could copy the damned thing though :)
This is key if you got 40 chars random root passwords stored in password safe like I do.
Are you talking about ssh? If you are
Linux just right click and select paste
OSx just copy paste as you normally would.
Windows, right-click to paste too... but run SSH directly, not via a command prompt (otherwise your encodings will be messed up)
you can do this with ssh.
He's probably talking about the online console that DO provides.
I would like that also.
+1 for this
would be really nice to have it
It'd be very useful, as sometimes I don't want to load my console locally if I already have the browser-based one open just to copy / paste the contents of a server file.
I agree with this request -- it's impossible to paste from the clipboard into the VNC terminal on your droplet. Yes, I can do it with Putty on Windows, but some things don't run well in putty (e.g, tasksel in Ubuntu).
Console Access is really only for emergency access. It's best if you login using SSH. You can use PuTTY to do this if you are using Windows and allows copy and pasting.
This would really be helpful.
Please add this.
This would really be great. I don't usually use the VNC console (I normally use Terminal), but this would be an excellent feature, for say, if I am away from my regular computer and I need to log in and make a few changes. Copy/Paste can always save a few keystrokes!
Please add this!
that's another issue..no copy and pasting!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a huge flaw using your vcn. When I pull out my mobile phone it would be nice to have the ability to copy and paste!
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
