They don't work for some reason that I can't understand. The keyboard
commands for Control-C, and Control-V work perfectly but when I do a
menuPick from a popup menu it didn't work. I spent hours on this.
Perhaps I missed something. I just wanted a right-click menuPick to
work on the selected text in a field of the same stack. It was
suggested to use an offScreen button like this:

In the right-click menuPick I tried copy & paste. Perhaps I'll try one
more time. I gave up on turning the locktext or textlock true and then
So I just tried now and with the mousedown handler moved from the text
field to the stack the handler opens the popup menu but I lose the
selection so there is nothing for the cammands to work on now.
Maybe I'll figure that out soon.
