Copy function not working

I am using version 6.3 on a Mac running OS X Yosemite and I am unable to copy diagrams or graphs and paste them into a Word document. It seems that they are not being copied to the clipboard. I tried re-installing Simile with no luck. I did install GCC compiler. Could that be causing the problem. I have not been able to figure out how to uninstall that yet to test.

Thanks, Dale

Sorry to say, copying graphics to the clipboard has never worked in MacOS. It's a restriction on the toolkit on which Simile was built. You'll need to use the system screenshot tool to capture graphics.

Don't uninstall gcc -- you need it to run models in Yosemite. Simile's bundled c++ compiler only works on older OSX versions where it is harder to install gcc. Be sure to select 'GNU' for 'Use which c++ compiler' in Preferences -> Build.
