Most of my copy/paste needs are spent replacing text.
I love the middle-mouse copy/paste feature of *nix systems, and I use it a lot, but it is annoying that, when pasting, I always have to click before, or after, the text I want to replace, paste, then select the text to remove, and press delete.
I can use normal copy-paste (ctrl-c,ctrl-v), but middle mouse is so much quicker and universal (works in terminals, etc).
I know this is a petty request, but I am wondering if there would be a way so selected text would get clipboarded only after I unselect it, in which case I could simply:
- select text to copy
- move to other window or to other place in text file
- select text to remove
- paste, and thus replace the text to remove in one sweep
