Support Copy/Paste from Context Menu


#1

Right clicking a selection to copy it, only to have it unselected, is very annoying.


Add copy/paste to editor context popup menu?
#2

That is what CMD+C and CMD+V are for :wink:


#3

Those work; but having copy/paste in the context menu is a de facto standard these days. If keyboard commands are expected to be utilized alone, why have any context menu options at all?


#4

so is hacking the context menu an option in atom?


#5

Yes … quite easy in fact. See the “Menus” section:

I’m really a Keyboard-shortcut-guy. But when i started using atom i realized that i use rightclick-copy A LOT.
And i really can’t think of a single tool where that funtionality is missing!


#7

If anyone needs this feature I made a small plugin to implement it.

I still think this has to be in core!
