Copy/paste shortcut keys in stylesheet editor


I just noticed that CityDesk's built-in stylesheet editor doesn't honor the old-school shortcut keys for the clipboard:

Shift-Del: Cut
Ctrl-Ins: Copy
Shift-Ins: Paste

I don't know if I'm the only one using these, but they stuck to the back of my brain in the DOS days. The rest of Windows still supports it, so I thought it was valid. Any chance of getting these accelerators in?

You can use the normal Window's shortcuts for those operations

Ctrl-X = Cut
Ctrl-C = Copy
Ctrl-V = Paste

hope that helps.

Yeah, I know, it's just that the Ctrl-X-C-V key-combos are not as hardwired in my brain, even if I use them intermittently.

I use Ctrl/Shift-Arrow keys to navigate in and select text, so the other mappings are more natural for me, since my right hand is just below the Ins/Del keys anyway.

Agree completely, shift-del and shift-ins should be supported in future versions.  After many hours with citydesk I've started to use ctrl-v etc, but it doesn' t seem as handy.
