Possible helpful feature in Intellij 7

I usually use TortoiseCVS to commit and I save the commit log along with a date and time stamp along with a bugID in the filename so that I know I committed what and what files were modified working on that particular bug ID, etc. Intellij 6 and 7 have this cool Changes window which has now become indispensible for me in doing proper commits. It would be great if there was a Copy to clipboard icon or something that would allow the user to be able to insert into the clipboard info about the files that were changed + the commit message. The user like me could then open up notepad paste the info save it in their manner of choosing and thus have a catalogue of things that he had worked on and changed. What say you?

Hello Surya,

I usually use TortoiseCVS to commit and I save the commit log along
with a date and time stamp along with a bugID in the filename so that
I know I committed what and what files were modified working on that
particular bug ID, etc. Intellij 6 and 7 have this cool Changes window
which has now become indispensible for me in doing proper commits. It
would be great if there was a Copy to clipboard icon or something that
would allow the user to be able to insert into the clipboard info
about the files that were changed + the commit message. The user like
me could then open up notepad paste the info save it in their manner
of choosing and thus have a catalogue of things that he had worked on
and changed. What say you?


This feature is already partly there. Pressing Ctrl-C when you have a changelist
and a number of changes selected should copy to the clipboard the changelist
description and the paths of the selected changed files.

Wow that is kind of a sneaky find...I bet a lot of people dont know that. Still it would be great if the CVS commit message would be copied in as well!
