46 That's what I used to have here.  Now when I go to where I want to put a
47 file, either Cut or Copy from previous location, I have to do a ctrl + v
48 to paste in the new location.  I think other options are missing to but
49 I can't remember what all used to be there.  I mostly use Cut, Copy and
50 Paste.  I do have the option to create a directory or text file still. 
51 Some things are there but Paste isn't one of them. 
53 Oh, I'm on Dolphin version 22.04.0.  Forgot to include that.  I run
54 unstable on KDE and related stuff. 
56 It's confusing.
