Hi, the mouse buffer is automatic. You select some text with the mouse, and *bam*, it is in the mouse buffer! To paste it from the mouse buffer you have to middle-click your mouse (click the scrollwheel if you do not have 3 buttons). If you don't have three buttons, or a scrollwheel doesn't click, press left+right button at the same time.

yes i know.
When I click the middle mouse button it adds the text to the one I copied with CTRL + C!
But that's not that I've highlighted.

Mouse buffer only works as long as the original text is still selected. Once you select some other text or remove the selection, it is gone.

It should not be the case that if you select some text AAA, press CTRL+C to copy it, then select some other text BBB, and press middle-button somewhere else it pastes AAABBB. It should paste BBB. And pressing CTRL+V should paste AAA. Can you give a usage scenario similar to this how it goes wrong for you?

The "mouse buffer" does not even when I highlight something and then the middle mouse button it adds the text which I copied with CTRL + C:
Whether or not I leave it marked!
So he adds an AAA!
Translated with google!




EDIT

I think i have found the problem!

The mousewheel ist defined as CTRL + V !
But I do not know how to set it!
