#15828 closed enhancement (fixed)

Allow copypasting author from author window

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: team
Priority: minor Milestone: 18.05
Component: Core Version:
Keywords: Cc:


When doing QA I often use the search function looking for the edits of specific users. In some cases the names of said users are very long or for various reasons just plain difficult to get right though. In those cases I really wish I could just right-click->copy & paste the username from the Author window

Not exactly what you requested, but to copy the name you can e.g.

  • click on show information in the author panel
  • use the advanced information window (ctrl + I)

Are these ways fine for you?

I am quite familiar with using the author panel->show info information, but opening an external window everytime was getting a bit too tedious.
I never really needed the advanced information window, so didn't think about that, but copying usernames from there could work.
Right-click->copy directly from the author panel would be way more intuitive though.
