An ingenious suggestion, which might indeed work for some apps; but not for a 
browser instance inside Rev.  Your suggestion did make me test what happened 
if my Rev app executed 'paste' while the focus was on a text field in the web 
page in the browser instance in the stack: the result was can't "paste (empty 
clipboard or locked destination)".

Keep the suggestions coming - these are all good ideas which might work for 
some contexts - just haven't yet found the one that answers mine!

thanks,
