I am trying to make an optical encoder, so I want to cut a lot of holes at even intervals around a disk. I am trying to make a macro to apply Boolean modifiers, rotate 5 degrees, and repeat. All the tutorials I have watched say to copy the commands out of the info screen and paste it into a text editor, but when I hit Ctrl- C it doesn't seem to do anything. There's nothing in the clipboard to paste.
I have checked that my keyboard bindings are correct, and I am not sure what else to check. Do I maybe need to be in a particular mode to be able to copy out of the info screen?
