Steps to reproduce this issue

  1. Step 1;
    Click on a table and go to Data tab.

  2. Step 2;
    Select Export Grid Rows and select Output Target as File.

  3. Step 3;
    Select all or part of the rows and press CTRL-SHIFT-C (or select Copy Selected Rows).

  4. Then I get...
    Grid data is saved into the file and does not copied to clipboard.

Current behavior

Grid data is not copied to clipboard.

Expected behavior

Grid data should be copied to clipboard instead of saved to a file.

Possible solution

  1. Copy Selected Rows can use all the settings in the Export Grid Data but not the Output Target, always copies to clipboard.
  2. Copy Selected Rows doesn't use Export Grid Data settings and always copies rows to clipboard as tab separated (or uses a different separator that can be configured in Preferences)
