    Am just getting started with JustCode, and have come across an issue. 

    One of my favorite keyboard shortcuts in Visual Studio is to highlight a word, line, etc, move the mouse away for a second, then hold Ctrl while left-clicking on the item and dragging, to copy something to another location in the current window. The beauty of this is that it doesn't disturb anything you have copied to the clipboard, so it's almost like getting 2 items on the clipboard.

    Great for Ctrl-C copying a value from somewhere, then dragging a copy of a line, then Ctrl-V pasting in the value you copied to replace something in the line you just drag-copied

    I tried to set JustCode up with a minimal set of keyboard bindings, but it seems to have broken my Ctrl-left drag. Either nothing happens,or it takes me to a definition of something in the highlight, which is jarring when it's in a different project or solution.

    Anyone have any input on reclaiming my shortcut?

    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for contacting us.
    In order to copy some part of the code, all you have to do is to select the code and then just drag it with the mouse to the target location. You don't need to press Ctrl.
    However, it seems that you have used to do it by pressing Ctrl so here is a way how to disable JustCode Ctrl + Left mouse click binding. Go to JustCode menu > Options > Navigation and disable there "Go to definition on Ctrl + Left click in the Editor" setting.
    I hope this helps.
    Thank you.

    Following your instructions to simply select then left-drag does not work; I tried it, and verified that will do a Move, not a Copy. I am looking to Copy.

    I went ahead and disabled "Go to definition on Ctrl + Left click in the Editor"; that worked.

    I am used the the VS built-in F12 for Go To Definition, which I kept when I configured JustCode, so I'm not losing anything by doing so

    Thanks for your help,
