    In the IDE it would be interesting to be able to copy and paste variable names from the source text into the variable watch textboxes.
    For the moment we need to rewrite these names.

    Thank you in advance and Best regards

    It works

    Just use the context menu:

    1. Mark text in editor
    2. Copy with context menu (right click)
    3. Click into a watch text box
    4. Paste with context menu

    If you have a non-english windows (which i assume), in step 4 you will see your local language

    Nevertheless, that could all be more comfortable by adding an entry "add watch" to the editor context menu...:sign0161:

    As was pointed out to me by dzt when I queried this you can also use Shift-Insert to paste a watch.

    Thaks for the answer, I hadn't tried with the context menu, expecting the TextBoxes working like standard ones with ctrl C and ctrl V .
    But with the context menu it's OK.

    Best regards

    As I mentioned in an older post you can combine the (still working) old part with the new way since only the insert has to be different.
    In other words, you an do

    Ctrl+C (Copy) and then Shift-Insert (Paste)
