Description Talha 2010-06-08 09:18:28 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using Devel) 
OS:                Linux

For renaming various files, can you make it possible (again) to right click on the selected text and do copy, paste etc? Currently, when I right click on the file name in editing mode, it returns back to normal mode. 

For copying and pasting while renaming files, the ctrl+c and ctrl+v keys are of course available but the right click approach is also nice to have. It used to work in KDE 3 series and has always been available in Windows and probably most file managers out there. This has been causing me annoyance since the beginning of KDE 4.0.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Right click on the file name in edit text mode for renaming.

Actual Results:  
Dolphin exits text editing mode for file renaming.

Expected Results:  
The behavior in kde3 series, windows and probably all file managers is to see the right click menu where the user can cut or copy a part of the file name so that it can subsequently be pasted to another file name.
