Emacs Clipboard Question


I love using Emacs as my text editor, but entering

M-x menu-bar-enable-clipboard

every time I start Emacs (so I can paste globally) is tiresome.

Is there any way to add this command to an Emacs configuration/preferences file, so this setting is on when I start Emacs?

Try putting the line
(menu-bar-enable-clipboard 1)
or something like that in your ~/.emacs file
