I am a Linux user and I really like spyder. One simple functionality that I wish it would incorporate: "copy" and "paste" options on the right-click context menu in the file explorer pane. I would like to quickly & easily make duplicates of scripts for when I need to try something crazy without losing my original code. This would also be very useful for posting questions to Stack Overflow, where it is important to "strip down" code to its smallest reproducible form when asking for help from others about bugs.
I know I can open a file in the editor and then do a save-as, but this requires more clicking. Also, I just submitted a bug report about Spyder having trouble opening non-Python file extensions. Unfortunately that bug actually prevents me from doing an open / save-as with non-Python files, and sometimes that would be very handy.
As it is, I need to keep an instance of both Gedit and Nemo running alongside Spyder so that I can perform quick file copying, viewing, etc. It would be great if I could do everything I needed within Spyder.
