I know this problem was posted a month ago, but it appears that 
it was never answered.

There is a bug in the Revolution IDE that may cause the copy 
command to unhighlight any selected text. This seems not to 
happen in a standalone, though. So, before you try to create a 
workaround, build a standalone and see if the problem persists.
