Question: How do I add the Select All, Copy, and Paste commands to the right click pop up menu in the HTML Editor? I have searched for ways to customize it but get too many results to find out. Some of us like that method much better than control C and control v, etc.....

Comment regarding possible improvement: I did manage to turn off the spell check which is really not much good when it tries to correct variables in scripts from the unique names you give them to acceptable language words. I expected that feature to be automatically off except when a document is opened as a text file.

Their already under the Edit menu.
You can make customization's
by clicking on Tools
then Toolbars and Menus
then select Customize.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

It is not the general text I want to copy and paste. If you highlight a variable such as $myVariable to copy it you sometimes get an entirely different menu without those features I asked about. I'm writing a Perl script and when I highlight one and right click I see a menu related to spell check corrections that does not include those words I mentioned. I have deliberately unchecked auto spell check under tools/preferences. Please tell me how to stop the spelling related menu.

I'm not sure where the context menu comes from. Maybe a support topic would be a good idea. Please post back here after you here something.:)

I have discovered that when I get that 'other' menu popup I can click a second time immediately and get the menu with copy/paste but the highlight will drop off of the $ sign so it defeats copying the whole variable as intended.

No, it is a perl cgi script. I can't reproduce the problem now myself. Maybe turning off the spell check fixed it but not until after closing the program and reopening it. I thought I had done that earlier.

I think I will quit posting. I just look dumber and dumber each time... :o

Your fine Bush Pilot, The thought process is important in discovering an issue with an app. This thread should help others that may have the same questions.
