Copy document link to clipboard feature

Today I stumbled upon a nice feature on Codeplex. It’s quite simple and allows you to copy the URL to a SharePoint document directly to clipboard. This comes in handy when you’ve got WebApps setup to display documents when you click them, because the URL to documents will become something like: https://www.site.com/_layouts/WordViewer.aspx?id=…. 

If you want to send someone the direct link instead, the best thing todo is to use the “send as a link” button which will insert the correct link into a new blank e-mail. Works, but isn’t great. So now this solution from Codeplex offers help doing everything in one single step!

I did have some issues with SSL secured sites and the fact that it also copies the document description. But those are easily fixed in the .js file, see my instructions here: http://copytoclipboard.codeplex.com/discussions/263223. Perhaps the author will update the feature to include the ssl fix.
