Hi, I would like to inform you about this behavior. If your press ctrl+c while you haven't selected any text, then the empty string is copied in the clipboard. I cannot see any purpose to this behavior so I assume it is a bug. Also it is frustrating sometimes, so please look into it.

It's not copying an empty string it's copying the line.
