cut & paste .. shift-insert


hello..

i usually did drag and click mouse middle button to cut & paste
until i heard that i can paste with shift-insert

however shift-insert sometimes doesn't work
(it pastes way older cuts)
particularly from galeon address bar -> konsole
i have to do drag , ctrl-c and shift-insert
rather than drag, shift-insert
(i prefer shift-insert than mouse click)

i'm wondering how you manages cut & paste
besides mouse middle click..

I always use ctrl-insert and shift-insert on windows for copy paste. So when in linux I still use the shift-insert for pasting. Still way more convenient to me since I can type a bit of text, press shift-insert and then continue typing without having to pick up the mouse again.
I haven't experienced the problems you describe with it still pasting old buffers. But I don't use galeon so that's not really a comparison.

I've always found the easiest way to paste was pushing down on the wheel (third mouse button).

I usually use ctrl-c and ctrl-v, because i can do it with one hand,
its very useful if there lot of text-pieces that needs to be
highlighted with the mouse, and copied to another place
