I agree. That was my problem.
I still find it odd that I have to create a hidden field (better than 
off-screen, as Doug Ivers noted) as a roundabout to make this work but I 
guess it would not be a high priority change if we requested the feature.
Also, having to write at least three lines of code (put variable into 
field; select text of field; copy) where one will do is pretty weak. The 
same thing happens for paste.

regards
David
