Can someone please explain how to do this? I have tried looking at Mac commands, but haven't gotten it to work.


Try getting your 'text' and doing ctrl+c to copy (highlight it) and in-game do ctrl+v.


There must be several folks having a hard time figuring this out, as there is a multiple-page thread on this subject over on MinecraftForum.net, as well.

How the heck do you copy and paste in Minecraft?


  • Select All: ctrl a
  • Copy selected text: ctrl c
  • Paste copied text: ctrl v
