Copy Paste Escaping

Why is phpStorm now escaping strings when you copy and paste them?  More importantly, how do I turn that off?

Hi there,

Why is phpStorm now escaping strings when you copy and paste them?

Because it was requested by users .. and apparently it works like that on other supported languages (some of them, at least).

More importantly, how do I turn that off?

Completely -- you cannot. I've asked for opposite behavior (separate action to paste escaped) but was told that new way is how it should be done (see above).

But try today's EAP build -- it has few more fixes.

As alternative -- use Paste Simple instead of just Paste (you can re-assign shortcuts)

I did not notice this in older Versions of PhpStorm.
May be this is a bug in current Version but in my optinion it's not a good idea to change such fundamental functions like copy and paste.
It's completely unexpected behavior.
"Paste Simple" should be "Paste" and "Paste" something like "Paste Advanced" or what ever.

To get around the Problem I've changed the Shortcut of "Paste Simple" to CMD+V, so it behaves like any other editor.

I've re-assigned key too .. but it was annoying that I had to chase all of this down. Such intrinsic behaviour shouldn't be changed so lightly ..
