If the stack from which you are copying has been password-protected,
copying will not be possible because of the security exposure from being
able to copy objects with scripts into unlocked stacks for viewing.
To copy from a password-protected stack, you can set the stack's passkey
set the passkey of stack "CopyingFrom" to "MyPassword"
If the stack is not password-protected you should be able to copy and
paste freely, but as noted by others here the OS will prevent the app
from saving any changes to itself so if that stack is part of the
executable you'll need to move to to a separate stack file in order to
be able to save changes to it.
