To copy to the clipboard: select the text you wish to copy (ESC, v, then use arrow keys to highlight text), then (without pressing any other keys), type "+y . To paste from the clipboard, press ESC to exit your current mode, then move the cursor to where you want to paste. Then (without pressing any other keys), type "+p .
