All you need to do is change "copy_file_path" to "copy_path".

To discover this, I hit Ctrl` to open the console, then ran


to have all actions logged to the console. I then right-clicked and selected Copy File Path, and

command: copy_path 

showed up. I assigned the key combination, ran it, and it worked. To finish up, I run


so the console doesn't get clogged with unnecessary info, then hit Ctrl` again to close the console.

+1 for teaching how you got the answer – JannieT Oct 21 '14 at 19:39
I would really appreciated if you could say how you came to know about sublime.log_commands? Probably sublime's API? – hamid Dec 14 '14 at 11:20
@Hamid yes, this is documented in Sublime's API. – MattDMo Dec 14 '14 at 18:16
Great answer. thanks @MattDMo. Do I need to install a package for this? I tried right clicking on a file in the sidebar in ST3, and it does not give that as an option. "Copy File Path" is not there. Any ideas? – Matt Tagg Mar 8 '15 at 5:22
@MattTagg this doesn't work when clicking in the sidebar, you have to click in the body of the file. For working with files in the sidebar, I highly recommend installing the SideBarEnhancements plugin via Package Control. – MattDMo Mar 8 '15 at 5:29
