Extended message Actions menu when shift key is pressed while hovering

After using RocketChat for a while , I feel that it would be really great to have this feature of showing a extended messageActions menu with delete,copy and few more buttons when a particular key like the shift key is pressed while hovering over a message.
It’ll make deleting,copying and other similar actions really convenient as we’ll not have to go through the menu every time for these.

Hi!

That’s a nice suggestion.

Can you please add it to our feature request repo?

thanks!

never mind, you did it already!

@dudanogueira I would love to work on this if you think it would be a nice and useful feature. I think we can use meteor event map in message.js to detect shift press and show an extended menu. What do you think?
Shall I open an issue in the main repo as well and start working on it?
