Sorry to have taken so long to reply; "ran away" to our villa in the
country to pick apricots, peaches, plums and redcurrants; listen to the
birds sing, and read Herodotus: most therapeutic!
I stand corrected; up to a point at least:
I have had no difficulty copy-pasting between scripts when I COULD
select text; and I have
now isolated the incidence when one CANNOT copy text from the Script
editor (or at
least one incidence):
When Mozilla ThunderBird (my e-mail client) is running prior and during
launching of RunRev
I am unable to select text in the script editor; therefore unable to
paste it anywhere.
I have not had that problem between Mozilla ThunderBird and RunRev 4 on
Whether other apps interfere with copying from the script editor in
runRev 4 in this way
has yet to be seen.
Obviously gEdit is 'at fault' insofar as one cannot paste with a right
click drop-down menu, or
from the Edit menu of gEdit; only via Ctrl-V.
