Re: Copy/Paste/Cut defaults to ctrl + c, v, x as most other software.


Hi Kristoffer,

Thank you very much, I have just pushed your patch. I was really close
to implementing it myself, so I am glad you have done it.

Other related changes I would like to introduce (open for discussion):

- Proper naming for copy/duplicate operation (addressed by Fabrizio's
patch, I will simply rebase it and apply Wayne's remarks as it has been
reviewed already)

- Rename constants to match the actions (BLOCK_COPY->BLOCK_DUPLICATE,

- Remove the toolbar icons for cut/copy/paste. I am not sure if they are
even usable (with exception of Paste button). One cannot select a block
and move the mouse cursor out of the schematic frame to click the
toolbar buttons.

- Add Paste operation in the right-click context menu when clipboard is
not empty.
