CTRL-L overwrites Clipboard



  • I use Notepad++ 7.5.6 on Windows 7 32bit and just found out that CTRL-L overwrites the Clipboard.

    First I copy some Text, then I delete one line with CTRL-L. After That CTRL-V pastes the deleted line, not the copied text.

    I don’t think that this behaviour is intended. This looks like a bug.



  • Hello, andreas-petersen,

    No, andreas, it’s not a bug ! Indeed, there are some specific Scintilla commands which involve lines :

    • SCISELECTIONDUPLICATE : Copy current selection or current line, under the cursor location ( Ctrl + D )

    • SCILINEDELETE : Delete current line, without copying its contents in the clipboard ( Ctrl + Shift + L )

    • SCILINECUT : Cut current line and copy its contents in the clipboard ( Crtl + L )

    • SCILINECOPY : Copy current line in the clipboard ( Ctrl + Shift + X )

    • SCILINETRANSPOSE : Swap the current line with the line just above ( Ctrl + T )

    And also :

    • Notepad Command : Move Up Current Line ( Ctrl + Shift + Up )

    • Notepad Command : Move Down Current Line ( Ctrl + Shift + Down )


    Of course, with the Shortcut Mapper, you can customize your own shortcuts for these commands ! Just choose the Scintilla tab ;-))

    Best Regards,
