Mbed Studio board Serial Monitor - Copy txt to Windows Clipboard

I am sure there must be a way to copy the text in the board’s Serial Monitor Window to the Windows Clipboard, but I can’t find it.

If I have printf() diagnostic statements in the code it would be nice to include the output in a post requesting help.

I can’t seem to find a way to highlight the text to copy. Possible ?


Hi Peter,

Select text then ‘ctrl + c’ keys to copy the text and ‘ctrl + v’ to paste.
Works for me.


My Bad. Yes - It does work, but it does not show the highlighted text, so that confused me. Maybe a setting to change the window background colour or something?

I can live with highlighted text not showing as highlighted.

Thanks - Much Better
