Feature Request: Enable CTRL-A in edit fields on server

Sun Sep 17, 2017 1:41 pm

Many (if not all) of the edit fields on the server do not support CTRL-A to select all text. If it is possible to enable CTRL-A it would make things easier when cutting and pasting. Specific examples: the variable search field, the Script editor, etc.

Not a big deal but it would save some time - especially with scripts as I edit them outside of MyServer and then have to select all by dragging the mouse and copying and pasting. Thanks.

Noted. When I'm back in the designer I'll start adding the functionality.

I agree that the Ctrl-A option would be a time saver.

Simon - you can also right-click on the field and use the Select All option, then Ctrl-C / Ctrl-V, without having to use the mouse to select all of the text.

To one up that, it would be nice if we could draw a box to select items and/or to select items and group them.

The right click and Select All does work. Thanks for the tip. I am so used to CTRL-A that I overlooked the obvious.
