This plugin provides a CopyRTF command for OS X systems that copies the current buffer or selected text to the clipboard as syntax-highlighted RTF text.

This plugin was inspired by the rtf-highlight plugin, but only uses commands available by default on OS X and an HTML conversion plugin that ships with vim.


  • OS X
  • The :TOhtml plugin, which ships with vim and is enabled by default


Use pathogen and clone this repo to ~/.vim/bundle.


When the plugin is loaded, the following command is available:


It operates on either the current buffer or the currently selected text. After the command executes, the RTF text will be available on the system clipboard.

For customization of how the text is generated, see the vim documentation for the :TOhtml command.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
