Copy field problem

Hi Jan

Yes, that worked for me too.

Fortunately, as a workaround, having 'sharedText' active for that 
particular field isn't going to cause any problems in this instance but 
I still think it's a bug of sorts with the 'copy' command.

Using the copy field to stack command does not work for that strange 
stack (is it corrupted?) but if you just copy the field to the clipboard 
then paste to destination it does work as expected!

ie. from the message box..

Instead of..
copy fld 1 of card 1 of stack "teststack" to card 1 of stack "Untitled 1"

This works..
copy fld 1 of card 1 of stack "teststack"
create stack "new"
paste

hmm.. strange

regards
alex
