getting hung up on expecting the solution to need visual mode
rather than just using Ex commands.
I frequently use
or if I need it to go to the system clipboard,
I use these (and their "y"anking counterparts, ":%y") so
regularly that they're ingrained muscle-memory.
Because the y/d Ex command takes any range, I also regularly use
to do just from my current line to the EOF, or
to pull from the first line through the current line.
