Lots of people, who never played SWG before, can’t understand why copy/paste does not work by default.
That's because [CTRL + C] and [CTRL + V] bindings are used to see your [character list] and [planetary map]. I strongly suggest keeping them as default by the way.
Now, here is what you need to do, to get your copy/paste working in game:
- Press [CTRL + O] to open in-game your options.
- Navigate to "Controls" on the left side and press on "Keymap". (screenshot below)
- Choose the chat tab on top and find [chat edit copy] & [chat edit paste]. By default they are blank. (sreenshot below)
- Last step is to bind the keys to whatever you like.
It should work right away, but sometimes it’s required to restart the game before they start working.
