Context Menu Commands
|Compare with Clipboard||Opens the Clipboard vs Editor dialog box that allows you to view the differences between the selection from the editor and the current clipboard content. This dialog is a regular comparing tool that enables you to copy the line at caret to the clipboard, find text, navigate between differences and manage white spaces.|

The Ctrl+D key combination allows you to send EOF (end of file), i.e. to signal that no more data can be read from a data source.
Evaluating Variables in the Console Pane
- Select the variable in question in the Variables pane and choose Evaluate in Console on the context menu of the selection. When you switch to the Console pane, the variable name is shown in green at
>and its value is displayed below in blue.
- Alternatively you can type the name of any variable at
>in the Console manually and press Enter to have its value displayed. Code completion is at your disposal: as you type the name of a variable, WebStorm displays a suggestion list. Note that this functionality is available only when the Use Console Input toggle button is pressed.
- To evaluate a previously evaluated variable without searching for it in the Variables pane, find the variable in question using the Up and Down arrows on you keyboard and press Enter.
