I installed ConEmu last week, thought I'd give it a try vs. Console2. After staring at various config options for 10 minutes I didn't see any way to get ConEmu to automatically copy text that I've selected to the clipboard. Console2 will do it.

Is there a config option for this that I missed? I sure didn't see one but the configuration of ConEmu is a bit... jumbled.

You'd think it would be on the Mark & Paste screen:

  1. Update to a version >= 120617a
  2. Option "Auto copy" on the "Mark & Paste" page. Check it.

ConEmu 120617a

Please note. In latest developer builds (like 120717) option was renamed to "Copy on LButton up"

ConEmu 120717

Yeah? I sure don't see it. Added the screen to the OP. – jcollum Jun 18 '12 at 20:05
@jcollum You should've mentioned the version. The versions in both screenshots do not match. ;) – iglvzx Jun 18 '12 at 20:12
Check Whats new, new options appears quickly ;) – Maximus Jun 18 '12 at 20:15
@iglvzx indeed. I just downloaded this app last week. Apparently Auto Copy was added between now and then. 120617a.x64 has it. – jcollum Jun 18 '12 at 20:15
I had to turn off the Left Shift modifier on Text Selection to get this to work. – jcollum Jun 18 '12 at 20:18
