Summary0000725: CTRL+Insert cannot be used to 'Copy' tekst
DescriptionBesides CTRL+C, CTRL+INSERT can also be used in windows to copy your selection to the clipboard.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work in DBWorkbench.

It's probably a small thing, as SHIFT+INSERT (paste) does work already.

Being used to CTRL+INSERT, it would be great for me if you were able to support it as well.
Steps To ReproduceSelect a text in e.g. the Single SQL window, and press CTRL+INSERT. Now try to paste it somewhere, and notice that the selected text was not copied to the clipboard.

Do the same in Microsoft's Notepad, and you'll notice that it does work there (and in a lot of other applications).
TagsNo tags attached.

I've tried it and it works fine.

Can you see if there's anything specific where this fails?

It's a bit more specific, I've noticed now.

If you open a Single SQL, and do nothing else, it works.

However, if you run a select query first, then CTRL+INSERT does not work anymore in the query edit field. However, the CTRL+INSERT triggers an "insert" of a new record in the data grid! so apparently the grid is "stealing" my keypresses...

Ah, I've seen such behaviour before with something else.

It's quite hard to avoid, not sure how to work around it.

We've encountered something similar in our own software. What we did to avoid the problem was to disable the associated action when the grid doesn't have the focus.

Of course I don't know your specific situation, so that might not work in your case ;-)

Although that works for keyboard only, it fails when a user wants to click the "insert" button on the toolbar, cause it's disabled.

Hmm, you're right. Perhaps it's an option to remove the shortcut from the action, when the grid doesn't have focus?

Button will still be enabled, and the insert will only work when the grid has focus.

Hmm, now that I think of it, this shortcut also destroy the shift+insert paste functionality while editing data in the grid.

Perhaps they should be modified to ctrl+shift+insert/ctrl+shift+delete for insert/delete record.

Fixed by modifying keyboard short cuts
