Since IDEA is a Java application, it doesn't follow the normal X
convention of middle-click to paste. You can change the "keymap" (it
handles mouse button mapping as well) so that Main menu->Edit->Paste is
mapped to the middle mouse-button.

Ciao,

The fact that it is a Java application has nothing to do with this. JEdit (www.jedit.org) does support this type of copy-paste.

I recently installed SuSE-9.1 and the latest idea version (build #2103, since 4.0.3 had a problem with newer Linux kernels), and I also was frustrated by copy/paste issues (using the middle mouse, or Ctrl-V, or whatever).

Then I noticed the same behavior with OpenOffice. I'm usually trying to copy/paste between emacs and some other application, so I don't know if this is an emacs issue, a KDE, or X issue or what. It doesn't seem to be idea-specific.

Visual SlickEdit (www.slickedit.com) has this feature and Eclipse (eclipse.org) is going to have it in the next release. Why IDEA can't add it ?

Why Eclipse can't it (at the moment)?

Seriously, perhaps, because too less people asked for it?

Is there any place to vote for it ?

As far as I concerned IDEA supports this stuff since early Irida builds.
Please check-out whether your keymap doesn't have a conflict actions mapped
to Mouse button2 click.
Of course this only works on linuses.

You right! in Irida it works! Thanks a lot!

Now I've noticed that it works only if I select a word by pressing mouse button, moving the mouse, releasing the button. But it does not work if I select a word by double-clicking on it.
