Description Loïc Yhuel 2012-11-08 01:11:26 UTC
I'm trying kate from git master on top of KDE 4.9.3, and I found a regression : when the terminal plugin has the focus, the shortcuts (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+D, ...) still work in the editor, instead of being sent to the terminal.
If the shortcut doesn't do anything in the editor, then it's sent to the terminal (Ctrl+C when no text is selected, Ctrl+D when not in a C/C++ source).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select some text in the document
2. Focus terminal
3. Press Ctrl+C
Actual Results:  
Selected text is copied into clipboard

Expected Results:  
Ctrl+C is sent to the terminal

It's the same for reverse search (ctrl+r), ctrl+z to suspend a process etc... So indeed not an optimal solution.

let console eat shortcuts again
we can't senseful match against QKeySequences of the terminal plugin actions
