[FEATURE PROPOSAL] Add "copy to clipboard" option in share-menu

It would be good to add “Copy to clipboard” option on Share menu, as it’s done in some stock-ROMs.

This way user will be able to copy to clipboard when needed, for example after taping the share icon (:link:) to copy the post-link in Discourse.

Indeed I would also use this feature. For now I share to Signal and then I copy the link.

For Discourse, click on the timestamp of a post (top right) to be able to copy the link.

You can request this feature on the gitlab.

This could be useful for users not sure how much extra development effort this would involve :slight_smile:
You can raise this issue here mark it as a feature request and I can then label it accordingly. Feature requests usually take a long time to implement as they would require some internal code changes.

I figure in the meantime one can use something like the ‘Share to Clipboard’ app. One of those install-on-every-rom items that I feel I’ve been using forever. Available via F-Droid, Aurora/Play Store, and /e/ Apps.

Me thinks it would be easier to have it bundled with future /e/ builds than to code in that particular functionality.
