"paste and go" search in address bar broken
Vivaldi 32 ver 1.2.479.8, Win 10 X64, when using "paste and go" context menu to insert text into the address bar, the browser tries to use the text as a url and go to a nonexistent website, rather than execute a search. I have google set as default search engine. Bug report filed.
P&G has never worked as it should. At least from the contextual menu.
The involved dev told me that he added CTRL+Shift+V, but that for my purpose is useless.
If I have to use the keyboard, paste then enter, would be simpler than CTRL+Shift+V
Ctrl+shift+v indeed works, but that's one habit I'm afraid I could never get into. What's really needed is to get p&g working as expected.
Well if you have a spare function on your mouse you can use its configuration or xmouse button to bind CTRL+Shift+V to it.
Not a proper fix, but better than nothing, for now.
Yeah - my mouse has 3 functions - lmb, mmb, rmb. If I did this all the time, it might be worth incorporating some workaround into my repertoire. However, I try to paste-and-go slected text once in a blue moon - thus my surprise when it didn't work. Hence, the rationale that it's better for it simply to work, rather than using workarounds.
I recommend workarounds to people who are unaccustomed to some Vivaldi mode of operation, all the time. This is one that simply makes no sense for my my use-case. So I trust they will eventually get p&g sorted. Just like people who are frustrated by the lack of dragging tabs to new window - they just don't want to change their habits. Now for THAT function, I could care less - because I never break out a tab to a new window, or transfer tabs between windows. Never. So it's easy for me to tell them "hey - just right-click and select from context menu" because I don't have to actually use my own advice. I get that the tab-drag function is fraught to code. So I'm totally willing to be patient for things to be better-developed - especially for functions that I don't use!
I couldn't live with three functions alone.
My MX revolution has
the three classic buttons
the tilting wheel (I use it as a home/page down)
the two classic forward back /buttons on the left side (configured as volume+/-)
A side wheel (which is shaped like the main wheel but is more a three functions jog dial) I use it as zoom + 0 -
And another button labeled search, which has a no standard configuration. Until the GO button will materialize I use it as Enter
So 11 functions excluding wheel UP/Down.
I can live with 6/7, but not three.
