Is it possible to use left click to access "copy" and "cut" options in Workspace, as opposed to using keyboard commands?

I don't know command shortcuts, and I want to edit my code using the left click to access "copy" and "cut."

Does Workspace only accept keyboard shortcuts? If so, how may I learn them?

Hi Stephanie! If you click edit in workspaces you can then click duplicate which essentially does both copy and paste for you. However, I would strongly recommend learning the shortcuts. In the long run they will save you such a long time and mean that your hands won't even have to leave the keyboard while you are coding!

OS X Shortcuts

Copy: Command + C

Paste: Command + V

Cut: Command + X

Windows Shortcuts

Copy: Ctrl + C

Paste: Ctrl + V

Cut: Ctrl + X

These are just basic shortcuts and there are certainly a good few more useful ones to learn but at the moment you shouldn't really need any more.
