Disable copy, paste in diagram: Angular 7+, TypeScript 3+


Is there a neat way of blocking(only) the ctrl+c, & ctr+v functionality after selecting node(s)?
I tried using your "CommandManagerModel(see 1.)" and returning false based upon the keys, but this doesnt not seem to work.
Is there another way?

thank you in advance!

Hi Laurens,  
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We can disable the commands by overring the command manager. Please find the code example to disable the keyboard commands.  
public commandManager: CommandManagerModel = {  
commands: [{  
name: 'paste',  
canExecute: (): boolean => {   
return false;

I was very close it seems, but now thanks to your input it works.

Have a nice day/weekend!
