I work with the Enterprise Architectur software from Sparx to model UML. They has a method to add object on an diagramm that is very nice. If you press the left mouse button during you hold the right mouse button, an context menu opens and you can select which object you will place to the diagramm. In the Workbench it will be a table, view, comment etc.

It is very helpfull, because you don't need to select every time a new object an the left windowside.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Implement it ;)

Thank you for the feature request.

Many thanks for writing a reasonable feature request.

Unfortunately in Unix/Linux world pressing left and right mouse button is simulating the middle mouse button and is always used for pasting.

We should not change pasting behaviour and so we won't implement this in your suggested way.
