Emacs Copy and Paste
July 22, 2018
Simple and sweet. How to cut, copy, and paste in emacs.
- Cut selected text: C-w
- Copy selected text: M-w
- Paste text: C-y
- Copy current line without newline: C-a C-SPC C-e M-w
- Yank whole line (keep pressing C-k for multiple lines): C-a C-k
- Un-yank: C-y
Set kill-whole-line to nil if you don't want yank to include the newline.
