Copy and Paste with easy access in the project browser
« on: November 24, 2016, 12:33:00 am »
Copy and pasting when using the project browser is not very practical: we have to open the context menu and follow copy/paste -> Copy to clipboard -> Full structure for duplication.

Sugestion: Allow Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V directly on any item.

Hi,

Pressing Ctrl+SHIFT+C will help you. Ctrl+C is not copy of model but of presentation in diagram, and Ctrl+SHIFT+C is for copying model.

HTH,

Thanks, Kuono.

I thought it was a missing feature, as the Ctrl+Shift+C shortcut wasnít really apparent from the user interface nor referred in the user manual pages Iíve reached from google.
Even so, I think the EA would benefit from:
-   Having a single shortcut for copying (Ctrl+C);
-   Have multiple forms of pasting (as shortcut, as new element, as an instance, etc.)
Because thatís probably the way people are expecting it.

Also, in the context menu, Copy and Paste could be more directly accessible. Because these are frequently used features and (once again) thatís what people are used to in the Windows environment.

These are my suggestions.

Best regards and thanks again
