This is beyond frustrating , but MAYBE there is an option SOMEWHERE.
I feel that Eclipse (2019-12) "developers AKA coders" need to reinvent themselves and IMPLEMENT such basic GUI "feature" as "cut and paste" or "select text" block and use plain Ctrl C / Ctrl V.

Why is such basic editing stuff NOT implemented ?

PS Don't tell me to post bug - it won't take "anonymous" and its too detailed for plain user.

That is just not possible, the console is where you would see syntax errors and print messages, from my knowledge so far. It would not make sense to able to edit syntax errors, would it? I'm having a bit of trouble too, but at least you have an answer.

What platform are you on? Have you verified on the Keys preference page that those are the correct keybindings for those commands?

I can ensure that text selection and copy/paste (both Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V and Ctrl+X/Ctrl+V) works as expected in Eclipse 2019-12's Java console. Cut/paste does not actually cut the text out of the console though, but that's the expected behavior.

Besides what KCoder asked you, could you tell us which console you're using (aka which language/application you run)? Different languages might use different implementations of the console.

Thanks for reply. appreciate that very much.
I do not understand what option / data / setup I should check.
I run C++ (CDT) on Linux and have never optioned anything on console -
with an exception of disastrous application of ANSI "color" plug-in.
( Long deleted )
Yes, I do know that "cut and paste " woudl be stupid / no purpose.
I have used it as an expression, hence in "" marks.

It would be very useful to be able to COPY a block of text from console to be able post it (PASTE) in forum for discussion purposes or to keep track in project log.
I use multiple consoles and that woudl help too in tracking / debugging.

Small addendum.
I can select block of console text -using mouse.
I get a menu - but it does not include "copy" .
I my view that is incomplete / half baked "option" of basic IDE.
Why do I have to look if I am missing some option ?
Google it ?

OK
I checked in Preferences -> Keys ->Copy

Ctrl C in dialogues and window copy to clipboard edit

With undefined , as normal , icon attached.

So what is so special about "console" - in MS terminology it is Window -> View . Isn't?

BTW - similar post been posted in 2005 !
FYI today ins 2020.

As mentioned previously, the works in the Java console. If it doesn't work on some other console, it would be good to be clear on exactly which console it doesn't work. I see in a C/C++ IDE that there is a C/C++ Build Console and also a Command Shell Console, neither of which I see in my Java IDE. So if it's one of these consoles specific to C/C++ it's likely better to ask on the CDT forum.

Yes, there is "CDT Build Console" and it has a "copy" menu option.
I see total of 4 console types and "CDT Build Console" is the only one with "copy" menu I have checked - and it works .
The one I am interested in does not have particular designation by Eclipse - BUT it is a destination for standard C/C++ (stdio) cout / cerr files .
I am using it both "local " cout /cerr AND TFC "(remote)terminal ". That is what TCF calls it.

For me there is a menu with cut/copy/paste when I run an executable with CDT:
index.php/fa/37537/0/

Maybe a picture will help clarify the issue, though likely it's an issue specific to CDT and then the CDT forum would be a good place to ask.
