Whenever using a DAW or Cantabile (live performance), I name tracks and setups with the patch name I'm using. So I'm always re-typing patch names. I'd love to just click on the Unify patch name, or double-click and have that name go to the clipboard. Or make a "copy name" icon to click on. I've started going to the Save button then selecting the patch name, then copying it to the clipboard but that's a lot of steps.

So not like, a crucial thing, but it would be a lovely feature, thanks!

Fabulous idea, thanks. I've just implemented this in the code, in the simplest way I could think of: Simply right-clicking the patch name (which also brings up the right-click menu) copies the patch name to the clipboard. If that's all you want to do, just click outside the menu to dismiss it without selecting anything. Works perfectly.

While that is a cool way of doing the copy, it is invisible and the user would have no way of knowing that it had been done. It would be more clear to have it be an option in the right click menu.

I agree. Code has been updated.
