CopyPasta2
Noun: copypasta - A block of text which has been copied and pasted from somewhere else. Etymology: Blend of copy +‎ paste, likely also with a suffix like -a, from -er.

CopyPasta is a small utility that enables multi-line/unlimited-length pasting of text or commands into WoW. This is a fork of CopyPasta which itself is a fork of Paste by the authors; idlenexusgaming & oscarucb who are both missing in action. Many people have attempted to reach out to the original authors but there has been no response from either. Due to the usefulness and popularity of his addon, it was necessary to fork his project and make it compatible with 9.x. CopyPasta2 is essentially identical to paste but with its libraries updated for use with Shadowlands. This addon will be discontinued should oscarucb or idlenexusgaming return from their hiatus to update paste/copypasta.

Important Usage Note
This addon is a drop-in replacement for paste & copypasta, which is to say it works exactly like it, with all of its commands and help text. You must disable paste for this one to function properly.

Bug reporting and chat addon compatibility
Because no compatibility issues have been reported with other chat addons for paste or copypasta, it is assumed to also be true in copypasta2. Please report bugs using the issues section of this project. Bugs reported in comments will likely go unnoticed. No feature requests will be implemented in copypasta. All crippling bugs determined to be originating from the core addon will be resolved to the best of my ability. Bugs originating from the ace libraries will be resolved in subsequent versions of those libraries as soon as the Ace team hears of the bugs and fixes them.

Description from the original author's addon page
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.

Usage
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 9.x and all chat addons.

Hi Nuaik,

After uninstalling and installing the program is working perfectly. Thank you for a great addon that I'll be using for a very long time.

Thank you,

Sasquachh.

Hi sasquachh , Paste was the previous version of this addon if you still have it installed please uninstall it or disable it through the Addon UI at the character select screen. If you are still having problems after this let me know which addons you are currently using, there could be another conflict I am unaware of. You are trying to use the addon by clicking the minimap icon correct?

Hi, and thank you for updating this addon. I have tried an earlier version but I couldn't get it to work so I uninstalled it. Seeing how it was updated I have reinstalled it. I believe the issue might have been on my part specifically, you say the "You must disable paste for this one to function properly." and this I didn't do. So, the big question: How do I disable paste? This is probably a simple thing but even Google couldn't help me so if you wouldn't mind. :)
Thanks again, when this is working it's going to save me a ton of time in WoW.

Gooja do you have any other chat addons that might be conflicting? I would try updating to the latest version and disabling other chat addons to check for conflicts. I've just tested 1.0.3 and it worked fine.

Gooja Oct 26, 2020 at 02:34

Doesn't seem to work unless I'm doing something wrong. I hit paste and just nothing happens :/

Works great now!

TaliaKiran I removed LibStrataFix as part of 1.0.2 if you update it should be gone now.

TaliaKiran Oct 19, 2020 at 15:46

If you still have LibStrataFix in this, you should remove it. It tends to break other addons and it is really old. It for sure breaks GW2UI and I could only make the addon work by stripping that library out.

Thanks for the comment Dsheaffe I'll look at fixing that structure issue with the Tukui Client, I tested only through WoWUp.

First and foremost thank you for updating this addon! I love it for copying blocks of text (coordinates mainly) into regular chat. The folder structure looks like it is not cooperating with the Tukui Client. You get the error where it cannot locate the .toc file. Looks like from downloading the .zip that it is just missing a root folder (CopyPasta2\[addonfiles] instead of just \[addonfiles]). Again, thanks for updating this for SL :)
