Description

I know BeOS never had this, but ....

Would it be easy (and acceptable to the Haiku Board of Directors) to have a similar (somewhat standard GUI) functionality to other OSes and Firefox, etc. whereby in a text entry box (BTextControl) or even in the Haiku text view (BTextView) used by Styled Edit to get a pop-up context menu for cut, paste, select all, etc. when right clicking on selected text.

I strongly recommend you upload your screenshot and attach to this ticket rather than linking it. Especially with news that GeoCities is going to be shut down in the future.

Am I right in assuming this was fixed in hrev40305, as per the discussion in ticket #7002?
