Can anyone in the entire universe explain why the common Ctrl-V clipboard paste keyboard shortcut was replace by the totally unfamiliar,and unknown Shift+Ins sequence?

What brilliance came up with that?

What do you mean?
Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V and Ctrl-X are available in the code editor. You can use them without problem.

Ctrl-Ins, Shift-Ins and Shift-Del are not so unfamiliar as they have been available in all Borland's code editors from
th beginning (Turbo Pascal, Turbo C, Borland C++, Delphi, C++Builder).
Moreover, these key combinations can be used in most Windows applications: Notepad, Notepad++, Word, etc.

Where are the normal Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V, and Ctrl-X shortcuts?
