# How to copy text from pentadactyl to system clipboard

I thought I should be able to copy text like this:

/ + text-to-search + <ENTER> to find the beginning of text

n as many times as needed to go to desired search result

i to go into CARET mode

v to go into SELECT mode

l or \$ or other navigation keys to select the amount of text I want

y to copy selected text

But it does not work. When I then paste into Gedit for example I get the text that was in clipboard before i copied in Pentadactyl.

:js editor.defaultRegister="+"
To make this behaviour permanent you can put this command without a colon in .pentadactylrc
js editor.defaultRegister="+"
