Default Copy Action Name (DONE)

Hi !

Context
In the action panel, we can copy the action ID right click contextual menu.
It could be awesome if we could also copy the Action Name(/Translation) (if possible, the two versions would perfect).

Feature
  1. It would make so much easier to writte tutorial for Reaper, because we could use the Action Name with simple copy/paste.[/*]
  2. And it could be more awesome if we could have access to original (not translated) name[/*]
I don't think 2. is possible but 1. could juste save minutes and hours for people who writte tutorial for Reaper It can also make easier forum discussion, bug report, with no more approximation terms
I mean it

Do you confirm that there is not way to do copy Action name in Reaper ?
If yes, i will open a feature request.

Actually, I have to edit the .ReaperLangPack to do that

Feature Request here :
http://forum.cockos.com/project.php?issueid=5193

Thanks

EDIT: Also, having a ReaScript function to convert COMMAND_ID to Action name/translation could really help :P

I think there isn't a way to copy the action name. I would use/need this, so +1 for a feature request

Cooool There is hope

The more I think about it, the more I need it :P
It's probably due to the fact I am writting a 10 pages Tutorial on Reaper ^^

I could be also a huge time saver for bug report, translation team etc...

And no more approximative name : just a copy of the real action name itself

Meanwhile ...

If you add the Action to a menu in the Customize Toolbar /Menu window, then "Rename" it you can copy the name from there.

That's a solution

not THE solution, but still more intuitive than the .ReaperLangPack editing :P

I'm gonna have A LOT of buttons in my Floating Toolbar-8

Thanks !

Exporting the action list as HTML is another solution, but copy paste action name just like we can copy command ID would still be very useful for wrting tutorials and talking on forums

Hi guys, meanwhile I found out that there's an action to export the list including ID, Nr., Name and so on.

Search for "Dump"

@Pet
oh nice catch, I totally forgot this SWS actions !

I could mod it to have a HTML version,
Action List as HTML Improvements - Cockos Confederated Forums

it may also be useful in this scenario :
Action list: Command ID Filter - Cockos Confederated Forums

Native solutions for all this FR is still welcome, for easy of use,
also, native solution doesn't require some volunteer to maintain the list up to date.

Funny thing, I just saw the document on my Google Docs
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...mUA/edit#gid=0
I set it public earlier this year. Maybe it was late cause I complelty forgot about that !

The second +1 from you?

+1 for the FR from me. It would be useful, especially to help folks with custom actions.

Solved in v5.30 pre2 (see pre release thread).

It doesn't copy original string if you use a langpack, but I think it is ok, we can still copy command ID.
