Topic: Copy/Paste into Search
Did we lose the ability to paste things into the search bar? Or copy from it and paste somewhere else? I know the keyboard mappings changed, but I seem to remember this working even after that update.

This never seemed to work again, unless I am missing something!

Pasting to searchbox works fine here.
The only things to keep in mind are:
1) Focus must be on the searchbox
2) You must use the new keyboard shortcuts mapping (not legacy)
3) If you use custom keyboard mapping then obviously CTRL+V (or CMD+V) must not be mapped to an action

PS: With defualt keyboard mapper you can paste something to searchbox like this:

F (or any letter actually) forces focus on searchbox and starts a search
Backspace removes the previous letter, but still keeps the focus on searchbox
Finally CTRL+V pastes the text

If you want you can map something like the "`" key (the key that's on the left of "1" key) as search
Then you can press that key and follow with CTRL+V
This makes pasting to searchbox a 2 steps process.

I had to re-map the CTRL+V script I had to get it to work, even with the focus on the search box. I don't believe it was always like that, but a small change to gain the functionality back.

Only you & your psychiatrist would know the true answer to that question.
