Description bht 2010-10-12 23:42:46 UTC
In the Search Results window, on every found root node, there is a context menu entry "Copy File Path".

This is indeed a very useful feature.

It would be very nice to extent this menu entry to work with multiple selections, so one can use the copy as a todo list for editing a list of files, not only one by one.

Extend CopyPathToClipboardAction so that it can work with FileObjects and use it in MatchingObjectNode.
Keep old CopyPathAction as fallback in case the module with  CopyPathToClipboard is not available.
