Hello all :) This is be a petty request, but it is like an itch to me right now for a specific project:

There are shorcuts for copy and paste, but I often find myself moving bits of text between each other in circles. What I do is paste next to what I want to replace (buffer step), and then copy it.

I'm wondering if I can avoid the buffer step make this a one shot operation. Is there a shortcut somewhere that enables me to select text and have it go in the clipboard when I paste over it?

My OS windows, but the question is valid or all OSes, all plugins that could provide this.

Best regards

Someone asked a similar question about doing this in Visual Studio. There's no native support but someone linked to an AutoHotkey script to do the swap. – User5910 May 14 '13 at 16:00
