BBB Latest angstrom image and copy paste in terminal putty connection

I have a problem that I cant paste into a putty terminal connection when running vi. If I am in the shell prompt I can copy paste without problem.
This is odd to me because it just normally works towards every single *nix platform I have encountered.

It has to be something with the vim that comes with angstrom since copy paste works in the shell in putty. As soon as I start vi and I do
have insert mode active I still cant paste text.

Any help would be much appriciated

I solved this by changing terminal type setting in putty from vt100 to linux

I logged into Beaglebone Black using Eclipse Remote Systems Explorer and was able to copy the text from vi editor.
