I tried to implement the cut/copy/paste in GEF using addGlobalActionKey and addRetargetAction in a class that extends ActionBarContributor.

protected void declareGlobalActionKeys() {

SelectAll is working perfectly fine, but Cut/Copy/Paste is not working at all. I am not able to copy the content to the clipboard also. I use copyTemplateAction and pasteTemplateAction to implement these functionality. Also these options are disabled in edit menu. I went through a lot of links but not able to come up with the functionality that will clearly display how to implement cut/copy/paste.

Please revert on this issue. Thanks

You will have to add respective actions to the editor to which the retarget actions can delegate. Take a look into the LogicEditor of the logic example, where such actions are created within createActions().
