About Paste

Paste is a small utility that enables multi-line/unlimited-length pasting of text or commands into WoW

If you've ever tried to paste a paragraph of text or a list of slash commands into WoW you've probably noticed that newlines are stripped and anything over 255 characters is silently truncated. The Paste addon solves this problem.

Usage:

  • Open the Paste window via minimap icon, keybind, LDB or /paste show
  • Paste your clipboard text into the box with control-v / command-v
  • Press the "Paste" button and the entire contents will be sent to your selected channel, one message per line, with long lines automatically split.
  • The "Default" channel can be used to execute a list of slash commands (eg TomTom /way commands)
  • Options are available via "/paste config"

Fully compatible with WoW 6.x and all chat addons.

    So Using this with Tomtom,

     

    Will the way points be prioritized by the order of the lines you paste them as, or will it just point you to the closest to your currect location?

  • #8

    In all cases, slash commands work exactly as if you had typed in each line yourself in the same order.

    So for a list of TomTom /way commands, it adds each waypoint and with TomTom default settings leaves the arrow pointing to the last one entered (there is no "priority" in TomTom, only "current waypoint"). You can add a /cway command as the final line to additionally point the arrow to the closest waypoint.

    So very, very useful.  Thanks for making this.

    Thank you SO MUCH for creating this. I use TomTom along with guides for finding things to resell, and there are a lot of waypoints that I use. This will make things easy - I can just remove the waypoints when I don't need them, and then bulk add them again.

    Keep up the awesome work!

    Would the WoW API allow for saving things of this nature? Perhaps to add to the hotbar?

  • #3

    Not sure exactly what you are asking for, but there are already plenty of addons that act as an in-game Notepad, or that can be used to save/create macros (for putting things on the action bar). This utility addon focuses on pasting.

    I assume by that comment they perhaps mean a text based version of the action bar layout, allowing exporting of what is saved or loaded by an addon such as Action Bar Saver.

    Allowing someone else to easily share their keybinds etc.

    Regardless of that, thank you for your addon.

    You, sir or madam, just made my rare-item-finding day. If I could upvote your comments on Wowhead any more, I would :D
