Paste to Konsole from clipboard is Shit+Insert, from selection 
Ctrl+Shift+Insert. Why it is this way? Syncing was the only way for 
my coworkers using KDE to get back old behavior "select something 
with mouse and paste it with Shift+Insert" they were using for years.
Or I just don't know other way to do it? Is there any other way?
