Description Elton Woo 2003-01-30 20:46:42 UTC
Description of problem: Placing the RMB _within a document_, I can only cut or paste from the Gedit menu, NOT with the mouse. undo, and redo function with the mouse within the document. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): ]$ rpm -q gedit gedit-2.1.4-1 How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a document from Gnome with Gedit, or open Gedit and select a new document 2. Highlight text to be cut or pasted with the right mouse button. 3. Try to cut or paste highlighted text. Actual results: Options are greyed out (unavaialable) These actions are only available from the gedit menu. Expected results: Options for cut / paste should be available once text is marked. Additional info: Hardware: Logitech USB Optical Mouse connected via 4-port USB hub.

I am not parsing what you mean here. You mean on the right-click menu, the cut/paste options are not enabled?

Here's the behavior I'm seeing - if you highlight a section of text, and right-click *outside* of the highlighted area or an a highlighted line that has no text on it (i.e., only a line-break where the highlighting spans the width of the editing window), it basically de-selects the text, thus disabling the copy and cut items on the context. Right-clicking *inside* the highlighted area on a line with text will retain the selection and enable the copy and cut items on the context menu.

Michael Knepher seems to have put his finger on it. I guess once the pointer gets _just outside_ the highlighted text, I lose the ability to copy / cut. Since I'm running the screen at 1024 x 768, it's pretty easy to RMB just after (i.e. *outside of*) the selected text. Not only that, but once I highlight my text, doing a right mouse click actually "deselects' the text. (The text is no longer highlighted. I'm reasonably certain that I didn't see this behavoir in Phobe1. e.g. In Mozilla, or even in nautilus, I can let my RMB click on white space, and I *still* get the cut / copy option. Whereas, with gedit, I have to remember to _keep the mouse pointer within_ the selected text. The crux of the problem here is the pointer MUST remain _*somewhere* within_ the selected text.

OK, thanks. I've reported this as http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=104950

I'm not sure if this affects the same component, but the same thing occurs in evolution-1.2.1. I haven't checked any other apps yet.
