    Hi,
    Using the MSGBOX command;

    Code:
    msgbox ok "Copy To Clipboard" Press CTRL-C
    I can copy the msgbox text to the Clipboard using the keyboard combination of CTRL-C, which gives me;

    Code:
    >type clip:
    ---------------------------
    Copy To Clipboard
    ---------------------------
    Press CTRL-C
    ---------------------------
    OK
    ---------------------------
    In PowerBASIC and Visual Basic apps that I develop, I can use the CTRL-C and CTRL-INS keyboard combinations to copy the msgbox text to the Clipboard.

    In TCMD 12 and 13, both in tabbed and non-tabbed TCC windows, the CTRL-INS does not work. I am using XP SP3.

    Why does the CTRL-INS keyboard combination work in other apps, but not in TCMD/TCC?

    Joe
