PasteFrom(source)

Paste the specified clipboard to the current pane.

This is only really meaningful on X11 and some Wayland systems that have multiple clipboards.

Possible values for source are:

  • Clipboard - paste from the system clipboard
  • PrimarySelection - paste from the primary selection buffer

See also Paste.

local wezterm = require 'wezterm'
local act = wezterm.action

return {
  keys = {
    -- paste from the clipboard
    { key = 'V', mods = 'CTRL', action = act.PasteFrom 'Clipboard' },

    -- paste from the primary selection
    { key = 'V', mods = 'CTRL', action = act.PasteFrom 'PrimarySelection' },
  },
}

Since: 20220319-142410-0fcdea07

PrimarySelection is now also supported on Wayland systems that support primary-selection-unstable-v1 or the older Gtk primary selection protocol.
