When you go to paste a piece of code with CTRL+V and accidentally press CTRL+C instead so you have to go back and re-copy it.

    This happens to me all the time! I had a stroke 5 years ago, and now I hit the wrong keys all the time 😠

    And there should be an option to copy 2 values at once with a paste1 and paste2!

    Just for the sake of completeness: Mac users can use 'Paste' from the Mac App Store. Really great app.

    vi uses x for cut, y for yank (copy) and p for put (paste). you suffer for not using the vi master race.

    what about in Excel then? If you mark something, press Ctrl-C, and then accidentally click any cell before clicking the cell you want to paste in, nothing will happen when you hit Ctrl-V and you need to do it all over again 😑

    Why in this world pressing ctrl + v with nothing selected has to empty the clipboard? WHY!!??

    Download a clipboard manager so you can access previously copied pieces of text without having to re-copy them :)

    I'll probably go bald before I'm 30 because of this.

    In sublime there's a command (maybe cmd+alt+v) that gives you a choice of recently copied items from your clipboard

    All the time. And Brackets clears the clipboard if you press CTRL+C on an empty "selection".

    THAT moment. And at the very top of this Bullshit situation you got yourself to download some crappy little tweak app for OS X that you won't use thrice and uninstall it 1 week later because the little icon in your topbar annoys you.

    Use a clipboard manager, duh. I've tried out lots on Windows but settled on the one I think is the best: Ditto. Been using it for years reliably.
