Description nyanpasu64 2020-09-13 02:51:35 UTC
When Dolphin's terminal panel is highlighted, Ctrl+Shift+C triggers "Copy location" in the main panel, as well as "copy selection" in the terminal.

1. Open Dolphin and press F4 to open the terminal.
2. In the main panel, make sure an item is selected.
2. Press F4 to open the terminal.
3. Focus the terminal and optionally select text.
4. Press Ctrl+Shift+C.

Ctrl+Shift+C copies the path of the item highlighted in the *main view* (even though the terminal is focused). If you have a selection in the terminal, you get an ambiguous key sequence popup.

When the terminal is focused, Ctrl+Shift+C does not copy the path of an item selected in the file browser view.

Can confirm with 20.11.70 on KDE Neon Unstable.

@Nate: what should we do here? Should we change the shortcut?
Comment 4 Nate Graham 2020-09-21 02:41:30 UTC
My vote would be to change the "Copy location" action's shortcut to Ctrl+Alt+C. IMO that's a more intuitive shortcut anyway since it's an alternate form of copying.
Comment 5 nyanpasu64 2020-09-21 02:44:56 UTC
Do you plan to disable "copy location" when the terminal is highlighted instead of the main panel? How does it work when the sidebar or other panels are focused? (sorry I'm not on KDE at the moment)

I have the same problem:

Operating System: Manjaro Linux
KDE Plasma Version: 5.20.2
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.76.0
Qt Version: 5.15.1
Kernel Version: 5.9.3-1-MANJARO
OS Type: 64-bit
Processors: 16 × Intel® Core™ i9-9900K CPU @ 3.60GHz
Memory: 125,7 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: Mesa Intel® UHD Graphics 630

I suppose Ctrl+Alt+L — is more intuitive for «Copy (L)ocation»
