I want to know how to select, copy the entire command from a command block (separately) and paste it into the chat or an another command block on Mac. I've already took a look to the other question similars, none of them responded at what I had in thought correctly. Thank you.

  • I feel this is more of a computing question than related to minecraft. – Luka ash Apr 15 '16 at 1:45
  • I don't know the differences are between mac and windows, but can you use Shift+left or Shift+right to select text? From there, if mac has a copy hotkey (like ctrl+C for windows) you can copy the text. – ash4fun Apr 15 '16 at 1:50

Use the same commands you use outside Minecraft to copy/paste on a Mac:

  • Paste: ⌘ Command+V
  • Copy: ⌘ Command+C
  • Cut: ⌘ Command+X
  • Select all: ⌘ Command+A
  • Select part of text per symbol: Shift+ or Shift+ (In the direction you want to select the text)
  • Select part of text per word: Ctrl+Shift+ or Ctrl+Shift+ (In the direction you want to select the text)

These shortcuts work inside the chat, in Command Blocks and most other text fields ingame. They do not work with signs, unfortunately

  • This unfortunately don't works. I think that my game got a bug or something like this. – Kimatuy Apr 18 '16 at 0:13
  • I've made a second question, because my mac seem to don't accept this way of copy/paste/select in minecraft: – Kimatuy Apr 21 '16 at 13:21

For 1.8 and above, use Cmd + C to copy, and Cmd + V to paste, just like the rest of the operating system.

To select all text, use Ctrl + A

For below 1.8, use Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V to copy and paste inside Minecraft. To copy and paste outside, use Cmd + C and Cmd + V. If you want to copy outside of Minecraft to inside, use Cmd + C outside then Ctrl + V inside, and vice versa.

To select all text, use Ctrl + A

  • It does not works – Kimatuy Apr 15 '16 at 22:54
  • @Kimatuy I do not believe this works for chat, but correct me if I'm wrong. But it should work for command blocks. – APCoding Apr 15 '16 at 23:27
  • This only applies to older Minecraft versions. – nelson2tm Apr 16 '16 at 11:59
  • @nelson2tm Thanks! It turns out I answered that with 1.7 knowledge. Fixed it now, but your answer is better, honestly. I up-voted it :) – APCoding Apr 16 '16 at 15:09
  • @Kimatuy OK, it should work now. I made a mistake. But also check out nelson2tm's answer below, it's better, with more shortcuts. – APCoding Apr 16 '16 at 15:09
