One thing you might have to do is add a pasteKey handler to the dialog
card. In my app, there are not yet any menus loaded when the initial
registration window appears, so there is no automatic editing
capabilities. I don't need copying, but I did need pasting, so I added
this to the card:
put the clipboardData["text"] into fld "myRegField"
Or you might want to use "the selectedfield" if you allow pasting to any
field. If you do need the ability to copy, take a look at "copyKey" in
the docs and write a handler to catch that message too.
Adding the pasteKey handler got it working for me on all platforms,
except that on Windows it works only some of the time.
