Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V does not work (#438)

In many case, keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V) does not work.

Copying in context menu with mouse-right click works fine.

When copying new diagram, always pop up "Paste as a independent copy?" even after checking "Don't show this again".

Thank you for your notice. I will fix the problem with ignoring the setting "Don't show this again".

Problem with Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V will need deeper analysis. If it is possible some examples, when it does not work, would be appreciated.

Ctrl+C copies an active object from a focused control - e.g. diagram canvas, any text box. So when it seems it is not working, the content is probably copying from the control which is not expected as active/focused.

Do you try to use Ctrl+C in the diagram canvas or in the project tree?

I think it is related to multiple monitor. Try this. 1) open several diagram windows. 2) drag out one to different monitor. 3) copy and paste some diagram element in that monitor.

Thank you for your clarification. Yes, the problem occurs always when the form is dragged out from the main window. Actually, all shortcut keys from the menu of the main window stops to work from such form.

The problem will be fixed in the next version.
