What's wrong?  Dr. Hawkins wrote something positive about Livecode!

If one could copy-paste from a PDF into Livecode that would be super.

While I'm here . . .

When I want to paste something from the script editor into either my 
e-mail client (Thunderbird)
or a comment box on the Forums (Firefox) I have to do this, err, "merry 
dance":

select-and-copy from the Livecode script editor to a text editor (on 
Linux: Gedit or Leafpad),
then select-and-copy what I have just pasted into the text editor and 
paste into the e-mail client
or Firefox.

I wonder why copy-paste does NOT work directly?

Richmond.
