Why nobody cares about Cut, Copy and Paste ? [message #226607] Sun, 19 November 2006 17:52 Go to next message

None of the GEF examples has support for these standard actions.
Is it simply because of lack of spare time to finish the details,
or they are considered redundant?
I understand that most of real-life applications of GEF orbit
arround UML modelinf problems and therefore most frequently are
some kind of UML editors. Indeed in such scenarios the need to copy
and paste a class would be scarse.
But there are domains, for instance editing a geometry, when the ability
to quickly build aggregations of identical parts by multiplying a base
template
part is essential.
Any ideas?

Hi,
I completely agree with you, these basic actions should have support
provided by the framework. However, you can make use of the clipboard to
cut, copy, paste items as a i recently did. Please let me know if you
would need any specific help.

Thank you for offering help Siddharth. I already implemented these
myself, I just don't get it how come functionality so basic is missing.
Cheers,
