The Selection Menu compromises the Copy function.

  3. If the selection is less than 6 words Copy is not an option in the Menu
    1. If you click for the Context menu, you may have to click SELECTION before you can click Copy
    2. If you press CTRL+C (Win) it will not copy the text.
      1. the scroll wheel is also disabled

So, it seems that Copy should always be available on the Menu; which makes the distinction of 6 or more words even more arbitrary as a means of deciding what functions should appear.

Of course, we can always disable the Selection menu. But, from a position of wanting to minimise global settings post-Libronix, there is suddenly a plethora of 3 other Settings to handle text, which also interact with the Text Selection setting.

I trust that the Context menu will remain, with its unambiguous selection of Actions!

Dave,

This will be fixed, so you will be able to use the keyboard shorcut.
