I have a problem with the Matlab help that pops up when I press F1. I used to copy-paste different examples from there directly in the command window, but for some time now it doesn't work anymore. If I highlight something in the help window, the copy option is not available anymore. Is this the typical behavior of the help form Matlab 2013b or is something wrong with my computer?

With Matlab 2016a (on OS X Yosemite) the bug persists... Try
cmd-c ctrl-v to copy
cmd-v to paste

You need to use control-insert to copy from the help documentation. Hopefully they'll get the bug fixed by the next version.

Very frustrating.
However you can get the exact same help on-line at
You will then be able to copy it from your browser.

I have to use cmd-c to copy and ctrl-v to paste since I swapped ctrl and cmd in osx. It appears that Matlab does not honor swapping cmd and ctrl.

I'm running R2019b on a Mac (10.13.6) and command-C ((⌘C) does nothing if I highlight text in the Help window. However, right-click brings up a context-menu which has "Copy ⌘C" at the bottom. Selecting that does Copy the text. I haven't done anythng weird with key assignments.

I am facing a little bit of a similar bug, I am unable to select text in the help browser if no mouse is connected to the physical machine. I am running Matlab on a remote machine (win 10) that I connect via VNC. The machine is in a server room, and intended to not be accessed other then for maintenance. I do want to use Matlab on it, and not on my local machine, to interface with other software running on it easily. Any ideas anyone?

I find I can copy text from the matlab help browser, paste it to notepad, then copy it from notepad into matlab editor. but I can't copy reliably from help to editor directly.
