Still no option for native copy & paste behaviour on Windows...

The settings can be changed in Window -> Selection and has been there for years.

However if you want [Ctrl]+[C] / [Ctrl]+[V] then you're going to be out of luck as they're console control characters. The former being a pretty vital one too.

Why wouldn't you just use the standard Ctrl-Shift-Ins / Ctrl-Ins? Ctrl

I mean, the unix-style behaviour of automatically copying as soon as you make a selection. Sometimes it is handy to select a region to make it more readable in negative colours, or as a marker to refer back to. But as soon as you make a selection, it is copied to the clipboard, overwriting any previous clipboard content. This might be common behaviour on unix, but it is not on Windows. I'd like to see an option for manual copying via the context menu.

I'm surprised you missed the copy and paste settings.

The very first thing I do with a new program is poke around all of its option menus.
