Public bug reported:

Until Ubuntu 18.10 Nautilus does copy all selected filenames in simple Text 
format and this way you cold paste the selected files as a list to other 
programs: for example into the texteditor gedit. This was a very useful 
function if you have, for example, to upload a file to webmail or other 
web-service. You cold copy the file within nautilus and paste it directliy to 
the selection dialog or webfield to upload the file.

Or if you wanted a simple List of all your files in a folder you where
able to select all files with nautilus, copy and paste into gedit. This
is not possible anymore. The output of natilus looks now like this:


Until Ubuntu 18.10 this looks like this:

/home/<user>/Schreibtisch/new document.txt

Steps to reproduce:
1. Select files with nautilus
2. Press Ctrl+C
3. open gedit
4. press Ctrl+V
