I close this report because the desired features are implemented in the meantime expect for Kate for which I see little chances to be embedded in the (near) future.
A feature request for Kate can be reopened later if desired.

I'm using the 3.7.2 version of octave in gui mode and trying to copy and paste commands I've discovered that I should use the shortcuts Ctrl+Shift+C and Ctrl+Shift+V to do that, as in Konsole from KDE.

It would be nice if the classical Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V shortcuts can be used as in Matlab and other programs.

On the other hand, due to the gui is qt based it would be nice if he Kate editor from KDE could be embedded as the default editor in the gui because I think it has more configuration options that the qscintilla.

And finally it would be nice if the background color could be configured in the gui
