Every post containing a quote and a link requires swap between the windows to copy first the quote, and then the URL for the link. And hence my question, why isn’t cut and paste a stack based system? Even if it wasn’t by default, it’d be really useful as an extension. In fact just by adding a modifier to Control-C/X and Control-V would create something useful:
Ctrl-C – copy the selected text, clearing the stack
Shft-Ctrl-C – push a copy of the selected text on to the stack
Ctrl-V – copy the selected text, peeking from the stack
Shft-Ctrl-V – push a copy of the selected Text off the stack
Wonder how much use it’d get if it was there? The default behaviour is identical to what we have now, so where is the harm? What am i missing? Maybe we don’t have this because of past memory restrictions… can’t see why it’s not doable now.
