So technical mumbo-jumbo aside, can I still copy and paste text into the new VTBE?
Safely and securely?
You have three options:
1) use your browser’s Edit menu to cut/copy/paste text
2) use keyboard shortcuts (Control+C = copy, Control+V = paste on a PC; Command+C = copy, Command+V = paste on a Mac).
3) use the VTBE cut/copy/paste commands (see below)
