Allow users to disable or change the upload to instant share hotkey.
Many code editors use Ctrl-Shift-U to toggle the case of selected text to upper case.
The hotkey can now be disabled from the Upload window in the latest LINQPad 5 beta.
THIS IS A SECURITY FLAW AND CAN ALL-TOO-EASILY PRODUCE A SECURITY BREACH.
Please... we need an option to disable this non-confirmational security 'feature' immediately.
I am being asked to not use LinqPad any longer in my day to day workflow because someone accidentally shared something to Instant Share.
We need to be able to:
a) disable the menu item so that it cannot be accidentally clicked (or even seen)
b) disable the hot key combo so that it cannot be accidentally hit
c) manage the scripts that have been uploaded on our behalf so that we can delete any sensitive scripts.
Scripts should not be automatically made publicly accessible without warning and should certainly not be left unmanageable.
Please take care of this soon so that I can reverse the policy that is being imposed.

This security "snafu" is enough to almost make me go back to VS exclusively...I did not appreciate the unintended sending of private code to a "public" URL... :-(

VERY important... I just tried to uppercase something and wound up sharing a snippet that I definitely did not want going to a public URL, especially non-SSL.

At the very least, I would like to be able to manage the queries that have been loaded. So an interface providing capability to to list uploaded queries and then delete them.

This should be a nobrainer. LINQPad should at the very least pop open a message box asking if the user wants to share the code to the internet before doing so.
Please allow disabling of the "Upload to Instashare" feature.
I work in an environment where privacy and security is of immense concern.
An app that handles database queries and potentially passwords / connection strings / database details SHOULD NOT upload to the public cloud without warning or the ability for the user to disable it.
I pressed Ctrl+Shift+U to make some text upper case (this is the Visual Studio shortcut), and Linqpad straight away uploaded my entire query to the cloud - along with sub-classes that describe the proprietary data.
There is no way to disable this feature of LINQPad and no confirmation before sharing the file publicly.
This is very concerning since a lot of users are using LINQPad to work with data and code that could be secure / private / proprietary and this behavior poses a major risk.
