(I'm going through old bug reports that unfortunately got little response at
Let's see... this is from this stuff:
(bindings--define-key menu [copy]
;; ns-win.el said: Substitute a Copy function that works better
;; under X (for GNUstep).
`(menu-item "Copy" ,(if (featurep 'ns)
:help "Copy text in region between mark and current position"
:keys ,(if (featurep 'ns)
I guess we could add a case for cua-mode in the :keys here, too? I've
never ever used cua-mode myself, though... C-x and C-x only work when
the region is active in cua-mode, I think? So... would it be accurate
to put them in the menu? I mean, we could check for an active region,
too, but would that be confusing?
Anybody have an opinion here?
