ctrl-c is copying text into the tool bar

I'm using vs2008 beta 2...so far no one associated with the vs beta has been able to offer any suggestions, so maybe it's something with resharper.

Every time i highlight some text and ctrl-c copy it, whatever i copy gets inserted into the toolbar as a snippet. Its really annoying since i have to constantly go in there and clean it up.

is there any setting in resharper that might cause this? I've tried looking in the vs settings and couldn't find anything.

Hello merk,

I suppose you mean toolbox? It was VS feature since VS2005 (or even maybe
2003), but to be sure - does it happen with ReSharper disabled?

i assume by disable you mean going into tools, addin manager and unchecking resharper?

if so, then yes it still happens...which i assume means its not related to resharper? Does resharper do anything with keyboard mappings or anything? Although the error happens ifi use ctrl-c or right click and copy.

Hello merk,

This is not related to ReSharper, this is standard VS functionality, called
Clipboard Ring. That is, it stores last clipboard contents and if you use
Ctrl-Shift-V to paste, it puts top of the stack into editor, keeps it selected
and reorders items in the ring. Thus, if you repeatedly hit Ctrl-Shift-V
you cycle through the Clipboard Ring.

I dont think this is clipboard ring...if it is, it's not working correctly. I thought clipboard ring puts a copy of anything i copy into section called clipboard ring.

This is putting snippets in EVERY section in the toolbox. It seems to put the snippet in whatever section i was in last. So i've had snippets in the database section of the toolbox, in the html, in the ajax section etc etc

Can you tell me how i can disable the clipboard ring or check the settings on it? I'll try disabling it and see if that stops this from happening.

thanks

Merk,

Could you please check to which command Ctrl+C is mapped in Visual Studio? I
think, the keyboard mapping is got corrupted somehow.
