Are there any which can transfer contents between a virtual machine (win7) and its host (openSUSE)? KDE's builtin clipboard doesn't work...

Though I do remember using a version of emacs under Vax Vms and that had something called the kill ring. Everything you cut or copied went onto the kill ring, from which it could be retrieved at any time until the ring was full and started overwriting itself.

I also seem to remember that in Win95, you could drag text snippets out onto the desktop and park them there until you needed them.

For me it is more like "Yeah, it still has to be with the 100 last things i`ve copied" This is especially helpful for creating color schemes without having to memorize 10 different Hex-color values...

Will copy both text and images to a vbox.
For full disclosure I am the author of this.

My system is in the moment not geared for compiling anything. This will have to wait until I can make some time for it and learn how to do this. So: later. Thanks anyway for help and information .

Highlight the text (copies), then middle button (pastes), does that count?

Or maybe vi(m) - yy + p?
