Feature Request: Use primary selection instead of clipboard #280
I personally don't use the clipboard all that often but DO use the primary selection quite a bit. An option to choose between them would be nice.
I originally patched v1.0.1 to offer this and have now done so with current master. I have NEVER done any QT development however so it was a copy/paste/search/replace job. I am therefore not creating a PR but you can see it on my branch (f-clipsel) here:
I took the Windows build from https://ci.appveyor.com/project/annejan/qtpass/build/1.1.531
Installed on a Windows 7 VM from modern.ie
Primary selection does nothing on Windows (also doesn't break anything) so option should just be disabled. Also found some other UI/UX tweaks needed in Settings screen.
Primary selection works like a charm on macOS and Arch+KDE.
