When I paste that into Mac Mail, the text appears double-spaced as if it has two returns, but clearly there is just one (or a combination of CR and LF?). I’ve tried all the keys for setting the clipboard and also writing a script to delete line feeds, or CR characters, but nothing works. It’s either no returns, or what appears to be double-spaced returns.
> If I paste the text first into Text Edit, then copy it, and paste into Mac Mail it’s fine - single line spacing. What’s LiveCode adding to each line that causes Mac Mail to show the pasted text as double spaced? Is there a way to filter/remove that?

I don't have a good way to test this, but try:

set the clipboardData to textEncode(the clipboardData,"native")
