I cannot get Paste ( Ctrl+V ) to work in Oracle SQL Developer

This used to work in the older versions. My 3.0.04 version, which is the latest, last updated in March 2011, fails to allow this functionality. –  Dale Sep 2 '11 at 14:22

Which version of SQL Developer are you using ? Are you encountering any error message? Or the paste function does not work? Older versions of SQL Developer had a bug which resulted in Paste functionality not working. An earlier question/answer recommends use of the JVM provided by Oracle SQL Developer. I'd suggest to upgrade to the latest version.

Here's the answer (people, please upvote):

  1. Close the table if you have it open
  2. Click the table name in the Connections pane
  3. Click the Data tab (only) and do no other clicks
  4. Hit Control-A on the keyboard
  5. Hit Control-C on the keyboard
  6. Paste the data into another application

If there are any clicks between steps 3 and 4, the Control-A will usually be disabled. Once disabled, I'm not sure how to enable without closing the table and re-opening it.
