Hi, I'd really like to know how it might be possible to copy & paste
schematic symbols, with all their attributes, from one running instance
of gschem to another instance.

At the moment I'm having to manually note the desired symbol's
attributes on paper and type them into a new symbol. There must be a
better way!

NB My installation is probably long overdue for upgrade, using gschem
1.6.2.20110115

Thanks,
Matt.

As far as I recall - this just works now. Probably time for an update!

Best,

Are you running under Linux?

I can't recall the version number copy+paste support was added, but it
is there now.

There is a chance that your desktop environment might be important, as
not all X11 clipboard managers act the same. (Paste after closing the
source copy of gschem may / may not work, as we don't advertise the
clipboard contents as text).
