Unexpected "Cut" behaviour [message #1758355] Tue, 28 March 2017 03:04 Go to next message

Using Neon.2 (4.6.2)

Eclipse's "Cut" behaviour is very puzzling to me, and I wonder if I'm doing it wrong!

Example: I have the text: "The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog" all on one line. It is the _only_ thing on that line. Now I expect to be able to place my cursor anywhere in or on that line, press Ctrl+x and the whole line is gone, and copied to the clipboard. I shouldn't have to highlight anything.

Can anyone tell me how that might be done?

Ctrl+X cuts the selected text range. So you need to select something first.

Ctrl+D deletes the current line without the need for selecting anything, but does not copy it to the clipboard, so it is not cutting.

There is a "Cut Line" action in Eclipse, but there is no key binding assigned to it by default. You can do it in the General > Keys preference pages. For example, you can assign Ctrl+Shift+D. Make sure you select "Editing Text" in the "When" drop-down list.
