Description andreas_k 2018-08-29 08:27:40 UTC
When you use the contextmenu (right click) the first item is alway Cut according to the LibreOffice guidelines. 

This bug report is about switch Copy to first place and Cut to second. Because if you rightclick your mouse it could happen that you cut by mistake if you mistakenly touch the right mouseswitch. Happens to me from time to time and than I don't know why the content is not there any more.

It's not only LibreOffice that places Cut on top.
Comment 2 andreas_k 2018-09-04 10:12:51 UTC
I know it's default in nearly every programm I know.

This sounds more like a problem with how context menus are implemented, and might deserve a fix on that level rather than changing the order of commands because of this. Please see related discussion in Bug 114481, and my comment there.

What OS are you using, what version of LO, etc?  Thanks

As commented before, the sequence of Cut, Copy, Paste is quasi-standard. But all guidelines state to have the most frequently used function in the context on top - and that makes Cut not the first item. If there is no clear function we could use Undo/Redo.

So please keep the sequence as it is but always have the context depending most frequently used function(s) on top.

     + Primary (most frequently used) commands 
     + Open  Run  Play  Print  
       + Secondary commands supported by the object  
     + Transfer commands

     + In general, place the most frequently used items at the top of a menu.
   + Gnome https://developer.gnome.org/hig/stable/menus.html.en lays low on the sequence

Thanks for the feedback. I would not make such a big change like move cut, copy, past in the 3rd place in addition as mso had it also on top, but I like the discussion about this topic and hope to make something like in bug 119707 is written.

I close this bug as others stated that the current status is standard in all applications so we shouldn't change it.
