What is the name of ...

I want to file a request for improvement, but I don't know the name of the component :)

It is about the little blue bar in the editor that shows you the changes you made. What is this called officially? 'Changes bar' ?

You can call it "line status bar". :)

Ok. What do you think of the following: many times i change code and i use the line status bar to see what the previous code looked like. Often I want to copy this previous code to the clipboard, or select parts of it to copy. Does this sound like a reasonable improvement? Maybe in the form of an extra button on top of the original code to copy the whole thing to the clipboard?

Hello Stephen,

I haven't really investigated how to implement this request so it can get
"Won't Fix"ed for the same reason, although not as soon. :) But at least
adding a "Copy" button to the toolbar shouln't be a problem at all.
