Copy Path + Name as Text (Alt+Insert) enhancements

The family of `Copy ... as Text` actions under `Edit` menu does not work as expected when multiple files are selected. If a selection is present in current pane (red rows) it would be very handy if all names/path+names are copied on separate lines in the clipboard.

The same enhancement would be very welcome in `Find` dialog where on multi-selection all these actions get disabled.

These are very convenient options and it would be very nice enhancement to extend their capabilities to making quick filelists -- just select rows and copy (Alt+Insert)/paste.

Why would you expect the format to be one <whatever> per line? Why not separated by the locale's list separator, or quoted and separated by space, or separated by comma, or in OEM rather than in ANSI codepage or ... ?

CSV files do have *line* separated records. The idea is this to be a "CSV file" with one column only -- the full filename. I wouldn't mind quoting the filename "column" if current impl quotes on single selection.

Besides, CR/LF is not valid in filenames -- comma is.

Interesting thread. I only have the one hand now: car accident created MOUSE-ONLY usage. Keyboard is clumsy, compared to mouse-clicks.

Instead of the "(Alt+Insert) enhancements", I use:

(1) "CopyPathSetup.exe", 607 KB (622,271 bytes).
The url is: http://download.cnet.com/CopyPath/3001- ... 37174.html

It works for all file managers, I think, as a right-click choice. There are others as well, with more choices, but I don't use them

(2) PathCopyCopy 15.0.exe 1.29 MB (1,353,847 bytes)
(3) Pathc400,
(4) CopyFileName 2.2.0.22 1.98 MB (2,084,472 bytes)
(5) FullPathCopy 1.0.exe 911 KB (933,520 bytes)
