I have a gripe. I would like a solution, but I do have a gripe...
In general, I find it very difficult to cut and paste between
applications. Be it a lack of standards, but it seems that a lot of
programs do not want to "work" together.
Some programs use ALT-V and ALT-C key combinations, others use CTRL-X
and CTRL-C. Yet other programs use CTRL-C and CTRL-V. I even believe
I've used CTRL-Insert and SHIFT-Insert as well. This is half the
problem. Why not the same keys, and why should I have to remember "Oh,
I'm in this program and thus must use the CTRL-V key combo.
The second part of the problem is what I find to be incompatible
Say I cut something out of Opera using CTRL-C. I then want to paste it
into netscape composer using ALT-V. The problem though is that what I
cut out of Opera is not being pasted into Netscape. Instead something
I cut yesterday is being placed into Netscape. I can't even get these
two applications to talk to each other when cutting and pasting.
To me this is very poor and unacceptable. As I said, I would not mind
answers, but as I see it any solution is simply a workaround to the
