#21 Highlighted text should automatically be copied into input

Upcoming Releases

If I select some text, say on a webpage, when I activate Blaze by hotkeys, the highlighted text should be automatically transferred to the command input prompt, overriding the previously entered value.

This saves four key strokes (ctrl+c, ctrl+v) when pasting a command.

If the highlighted text is not wanted you can of course just type your new command as it currently does.

    I there. That's a nice suggestion. I will consider it for an upcoming release.

    Nonetheless, Blaze already provides a context command to reference that text. For instance, you may select text in a page and to reference that text, you can use the !this command.

    Try selecting something and typing on Blaze "Shout !this".

    Please, tell me if this helped.
