Version: unspecified (using KDE 4.4.95)
select filename text
In windows can click, wait, click, double-click control c
This may not be desired behavior... still a need for a number of people...
note that right click -->copy copies something that lets many programs paste in the whole path (which seems correct)... and presumably if it is an image, paste an image into a file...
heard that it is possible on kde 3 to hover over text making it selectable.
Reproducible: Didn't try
This is a conceptual feature request, actual implementation is subjective. I hope to tackle this, and am considering using the icon panel/ with configuration capabilities..
I have copied many many file names on windows in a file-wrangling job (bosses were too dumb to let us use scripts)... so I am used to being able to copy filenames.
clicking on text and not having it do anything other than be selectable is part of my long term thinking.
How about adding a context menu item 'Copy Filename Text' to achieve this?
This wish sounds similar to or related with bug 205157.
This is not exactly the same as the two clicks to rename a file bug...
This bug is just about getting the filename into the clipboard.
a plugin architecture could let us create a "column", "tooltip", or "gwenview like mini icon" that would copy the filename into the clipboard.
Bug 290846 is about the pugins
Resetting assignee to default as per bug #305719
This would and will be resolved by implementing https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=205157, which will bring usage in line with how inline file renaming works in Windows, macOS, and many other Linux file managers.
