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.


  • 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.

    Pasted in a macro and the comment lines got said out loud.  Not a terrible deal, but could we get the option to ignore lines that start with the # chracter?

    (Used to use super duper macro, but that just got broken apparently... so  now I'm rtying paste ;-) )

    I'd like to understand your usage case more.

    Paste can be used to execute a list of slash commands, it does not "save" its contents or create a macro. As such, it's mostly for "one off" operations like importing a list of /way commands or running a long slash command program from wowhead. I don't see the utility of macro comments for either scenario. The paste function works "as if" you'd typed in each line yourself, and if you type in a line starting with a # it gets spoken.

    I need a little help! I am new to macros and add-on. This paste things sounds really good. Downloaded it and was able to paste what I wanted. But it does not seem to work. Once I have pasted what I want, how do I make it work? I tried typing /way in the chat line, but it does not recognize the command. Any help would be appriciated. Thank you

    Paste just provides the means to easily paste in commands. If you want to use TomTom /way commands, you also need to install the TomTom addon. Sounds like that's what you're missing.

    Hehe, of COURSE this is one of oscarucb addons.

    Awesome addon, can't believe I've never thought of making this. This'll save me a ton of time. Nice job!

    thank you very much

    Re: Paste and tom tom

    Sorry this is going to sound like a noob question. Maybe I don't understand.

    How do you use this with tom tom? 



  • #10

    It can be used to directly import tomtom waypoint lists from wowhead or other sites. So if someone has posted a list of /way commands, you can paste them in using this addon. The only other way to import a long list of /way commands is to create and execute single-use macros, which is very tedious and error-prone.

  • #7

    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.

  • #4

    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.
