Description Venkata Rama Krishna Boddu 2011-09-23 04:55:09 UTC
Version:           2.6 (using KDE 4.6.0) 
OS:                Linux

In Konsole application, we using following shortcuts very often to do the Copy and Paste. Having "Ctrl + Shift + X" as default shortcut for "Clear scrollback and Reset" and Keys "X, C, V" adjacent to each other in QWERTY Keyboard Layout  is appearing problematic and posing the annoyance that, if a user intent to press the Copy shortcut"Ctrl + Shift + C" in QWERTY Keyboard and then he is in danger of pressing the "Ctrl + Shitf + X" as both "X and C" Keys on side-by-side.

It would better, if we choose any other default shortcut for "Clear scroll back and Reset" instead of "Ctrl + Shift + X"

Clear scrollback and Reset: Ctrl + Shift + X
Copy: Ctrl + Shift + C
Paste: Ctrl + Shift + V

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1) When you are using the Konsole application for very busy need such as Administrating the Production Server or etc.,

2) Please only concentrate on the Konsole of your sever and try to use the shortcuts for doing some copy and paste work.

3) Now, after doing some serious work then try to copy some content from konsole and by mistake(or by intent) press the "Ctrl + Shift + X" instead of "Ctrl + Shift + C"

Actual Results:  
In real, because of QWERTY Layout Keyboard's side-by-side "XCV" characters and my hand mistake, Konsole got cleared and now, I have no way of get some  output copied from the production server konsole.

Expected Results:  
In my mind, I expected copy to happen

That sounds sensible. What about 'Ctrl + Shift + R' as the default shorcut ?
Comment 2 Kurt Hindenburg 2011-10-17 15:06:50 UTC
We are talking about the default - users can always change the shortcut.

I'm not sure it is worth changing the default.  If we decide to perhaps use K?
Comment 3 Venkata Rama Krishna Boddu 2011-10-18 13:13:17 UTC
What about the users, who don't know the default shortcut is "Ctrl + Shift + X"?

They might accidentally click "Ctrl + Shift + X" when doing the copy and paste.

Change the default shortcut of 'Clear Scrollback and Reset' to Ctrl+Shift+K

The current default shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+X, which might be accidentally
pressed when users intend to press Ctrl+Shift+C for copying or Ctrl+Shift+V for
pasting. Scrollback is important asset, but it is impossible to recover
once gone. So change the default shortcut to decrease the chance of
