TextClipboardType

TextClipboardType
is an option for cells that specifies how EditCopy treats a cell when converting it for the system's textual clipboard.
  • TextClipboardType is typically used in stylesheets to customize the default clipboard behavior for different cell styles.
  • The following settings can be used:
"PlainText"preserve the cell as plain text; equivalent to EditCopy AsPlain Text
"InputText"preserve Mathematica's ability to reevaluate the cell; equivalent to EditCopy AsInput Text
"Package"return exactly what you would get if you saved the cell as a package
