How to? Copy+Paste in TCMD tabs with Ctrl-Shift-Ins?

The help file says:
To paste text from elsewhere in a Take Command tab window directly onto the command line, highlight the text with the mouse and press Ctrl-Shift-Ins, or use the Copy+Paste command on the Edit menu.
This is equivalent to highlighting the text and pressing Ctrl-Ins followed by Ctrl-V,except that it will not change the contents of the clipboard

That works for me with Copy+Paste from the Edit menu, but not withCtrl-Shift-Ins, which does nothing.

How do you make this shortcut work?
There seems to be no key assignment for Copy+Paste in the TCC options, nor a corresponding command.

Go to the TCMD Options menu, select "Take Command", and then click on Tabs. In the Windows section, you need to have either the "Left ctrl key" or the "Right ctrl key" checked if you want Take Command to handle the key. If neither are checked, the ctrl keys will be passed to the console app.

Thank you, that made it work.

Just one minor detail, if I may be so bold:
the choice of Left or Right Ctrl keys is in the Tabs section of the TCMD options.
