Middle mouse button click paste

Completed

Under Ubuntu/Linux it is common to be able to select some text by double-clicking on it and then in another window clicking the middle mouse button to paste that selection into the new window.

I believe that this used to work with older versions when trying to paste stuff into the terminal window, but now it seems to have stopped working.

Am I doing something wrong or forgetting some kind of configuration setting?

Do you have 'Paste on middle button click' enabled in Settings | Tools | Terminal?

Not sure what EAP (163.6957.23) is, but I have the very latest version where the middel mouse button still does NOT work.

Thanks, but I can just wait a little longer and it'll be in the next official version, right?

Yes, 2016.3 will contain this fix as well.
