Can't cut/copy/paste with keyboard

Really annoying that I can't copy, cut or paste text with the standard OS X keyboard shorcuts (i.e. command-v). Instead I have to use the mouse to bring up the context menu or select Edit>Paste from the menu bar. Really not ideal for a programmer.

Oh and have fun in the support forum if you don't understand Asian characters.

Rather expensive for what it does, and there are definitely some things that could be improved.

That said, it does work and I've been unable to find any other app that allows easy access & creation of gists from the menu bar.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your support. We will bring more features in the next release.

Useless on Catalina

Not compatible with Catalina. Features do not work as advertised. Tabs don't work. Search results leaves blank rows. Desparately needs an update. I can't even use it in current state.
