On selection in the edit menu



  • I can’t find on selection in the edit menu, also there is no option to open file or search on internet in the popup menu. how can I add those??



  • Those features exist by default. What have you done to change things?

    I put the mouse on a word, ^F will search for that word; I select a phrase, and ^F will search on that phrase. Similarly, RClick and Search On Internet will launch my selected browser. See my animated screencap:

    If it’s somehow missing from your context menu, Settings > Edit Popup ContextMenu will allow you to edit the config file for the right-click. You can look at the default contextMenu.xml in the source code, and copy the Search On Internet and Open File entries from there.

    I don’t think your posting adds any new information compared to what Peter supplied. Please avoid duplication as it just forces people to review greater quantity of material when they are looking for a solution.



  • Thanks for the heads up on the Edit Popup ContextMenu!
    My issue was the reverse of the OP’s in that the “Search on Internet” item was in the “On Selection” but not in the popup menu. The cause being the missing menu item in an older config file not over-written due to an other (resolved) issue.
