Hi André,

It works for me here on Windows (XP) with engine version 2.6.1, but 
somewhat differently in the Metacard and Revolution IDEs.

In the Metacard IDE CTRL-c and CTRL-V for copying and pasting work 
without problems (with "locktext", "Autohilite", and "Traversal On" 
checked; "Traversal On" is the equivalent of "focusable" in Rev.)

In the Revolution IDE CTRL-C indeed does not work (with the same field 
and stack), but I could copy the mouse-selected text from the menubar.

This would pose a problem in Rev if your application is a standalone.

The stack I tested is my documentation search stack 
"SearchdocsXML_2.6.1" which you are already acquainted with as you had a 
look at it while you were experimenting with search strategies some time 
ago (page "Tools and Samples for Development" of my website 
<http://www.sanke.org/MetaMedia>).

Kind regards,

Wilhelm Sanke
