Copying and Pasting seems to be supported, however because you can't select text the entire text is copied/replaced.

Copy/paste is currently supported only on Windows.

Yes, you can paste text INTO the game, but not copy it OUT OF the game.

If copying text out of the recipe output window is not that easy to do, writing the text to an output logfile would be another possibility.

As far as I can tell, both copy and paste work in text boxes on Windows. Ctrl+C will copy all the text in a text box if it has the keyboard focus (after clicking on it).

It does. ctrl+c will copy from the text window, ctrl+v will paste, and ctrl+x will cut. You must click into the window first. It works on the entire window...you cannot select text in the editor.

Copying out still doesn't work for scripts, only pasting into the script editor.

Copy out of the script editor works for me. What platform are you on? Maybe the script is too large?

WinXp SP2, Win7 64Bit.

I correct:
As soon as the cursor is in the script editor, you can copy all with control-c!
The only thing is that there is no way to make a selection.

Marking as resolved. Copy/Paste will work on OSX in the next update as well.

And how about @, { and } on non-English keyboard layouts?
