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
