I have no idea what the clipboard has to do with what you wanted to do

Anyway - this test should load an RTF file created by TextEdit and set the
RTFText  in the livecode field to look exactly like the TE document.

You need two fields,  Field1 and Field2 and a button with this script:

*global* gFile

*on* mouseUp

    *if* the optionkey is down *then* *edit* script of me

    *answer* file "get file" && gfile

    *if* it is empty *then* *exit* to top

    *put* it into gFile

    *put* "file:/" before gFile

    *get* URL gFile

    *put* it into fld "Field1"              *-- (optional) examine RTFText*

    *set* the RTFText of fld "Field2" to it *-- convert **RTF** to readable
in field*

    *pass* mouseup

*end* mouseUp

be sure to set the fixedlineHeight of the RTF text field to false.
