SecureCRT: Stop a running clipboard-paste

Hi

I would be interested in a possibility to stop a still running clipboard paste within a SecureCRT session.

I think most power users had already such a situation.
You are working with many parallel SecureCRT sessions and you sometimes paste into the wrong SecureCRT window. Or your clipboard contains not what you have thought about and now the pasting into the SecureCRT session is running and running. Maybe you distroy a network or unix system configuration by overwriting something with the wrong configuration.
You want to stop the pasting immediately but the only way to do so is by closing the securecrt session.
I you like a feature (keyboard-shortcut) to stop the pasting immediatley.

From the SecureCRT customer support I have got the information that this sounds interesting but there are still only a few requests coming for such a feature.
So if you would also be interested in this feature please send a feature request to support@vandyke.com or answer to this forum entry.
Thanks
Christoph

Yeah, it would be handy, but it's certainly not a deal killer. Disconnecting the session works well enough for me. I just have to be careful to not commit or write changes before verifying, but that's SOP anyway, because the downside of a borked configuration is an angry customer and angry customers don't pay their bills.

Hello,

I have added this thread to a feature request in our development database for the ability to cancel a large paste. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct e-mail notification, contact support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #6375" in the subject line.
