Ah, yes, the keyboard equivalent bug is still here.  I am using 2.9 on OSX

When using a script editor window, the ability to do cut.copy.paste from the
keyboard will take a vacation.  The menu choice will work always, and the
keyboard will hilite the Edit menu, but the command will not get executed.

This has been true for the 4.5 years I have been using Rev.  One workaround
I found was to use Menu Master which allows assigning keys to menu items in
any program.  Assigning cntrl-C to the copy command will work at the times
the cmd-C stops.  Relaunching Rev will also repair this.

Some days go by with no vacations, but other days they reappear.  By the
way, Rev is the only program I can remember using on the Mac that has this
behavior.  I have been a Mac user since '84

I think it is a question of focus where the cursor is in the field in the
script editor stack, but Rev pastes the clipboard somewhere else.  Sometimes
the Errors stack will be open and receive a hit that changes its field

Again, choosing the menu always works as expected.
