[WinApe] copy/paste from PC to CPC
« on: 19:44, 10 September 10 »
Hello, I'm just trying to copy/paste a listing from this forum to made some test to Winape Basic's emulation and it doesn't work. Could it be possible to add this feature in an update?

I would really enjoy to have the listing opened in notepad, copy paste it to cpc emulation and test it, it's more readable/ convenient in my opinion.

To make it faster:
F12, -> General Settings

Tick "Disable every [50] frame(s)"
(Insert 50 here)

Keystrokes cannot be sent faster to the CPC because they depend on timings.
(Theoretically each 2nd frame 1 key press is possible and each 4th frame you can release the key. Everything faster would be bad.)

Run WinApe
Open File/drive A - edit disc or press ctrl+shift+F1
then paste your file to the window.

The file is an Ascii file so
load" yourfile" and save it again.

If you have to copy a .bas file from winape to notepad
then load"yourfile.bas" and save it again as
save"yourfile.txt",a

now press ctrl+shift+f1 and pull "yourfile.txt" to a windows map
