Support for Windows stardard copy/paste

Discuss OrbForms Designer and PocketC Architect

I'd really like to see support for the legacy windows shortcuts, at least copy (ctrl+insert) and paste (shift+insert). I can't tell you how many times I've pasted the wrong stuff since I thought I copied to the clipboard, but I didn't. I keep having to remember ctrl+c and ctrl+v.

Old habits die hard.

Most every other windows program supports both old and new standards. OrbC Designer is the only program I regularly use that does not (even Microsoft supports all of the old set in all of their apps). It shouldn't be that difficult to support.

It looks like the app supports shift-insert but not ctrl-insert. Odd. Someone requested this years ago, which is likely how shift-insert got added, but ctrl-insert seems to be broken.

Incidentally, I was researching the history of these 'secret' shortcuts, and they seem to have come from the DOS days. Win31 and later supported them, but always documented the now-standard Ctrl-C/V/X shortcuts.
