In fact Copy and Paste DOES work on the White Pine Enhanced version - I
used it only yesterday to copy a technical word from my received or output
screen to the transmit or input screen using the normal Command C and
Command V keys. I haven't tried it on the Cornell freeware version though.
(You don't specify which Mac version you are having trouble with).
