like the title says, I would find it extremely convenient if there was a keyboard shortcut to copy the file path of the current file onto the clipboard.

Currently I do this by right clicking the title bar of the file, and selecting "Copy File Path", and it works great. But since I use this feature literally every single time I need to compile some code, or execute a script, it would be really awesome if there was a keyboard shortcut to do it.

You can use macros to do this.

1) start recording a macro, it gets assigned to a Alt+<n> key.
2) do right click on the tab, copy file path.
3) end recording.

and you are done. Now your Alt+ whatever key will be copying path to the clipboard.
