Well, after really needing to have this function, I was doing some tinkering tonight. Found some inte4resting things.
As I have stated in another thread, and you have confirmed, there is a copy paste issue in BA for Linux.
I cannot get paste to work OUTSIDE of BA.
I installed some various clipboard managers and this seems to apply to all.
The export, CTRL-C, Copy selections available within BA just do not work. Frustrated, I did multiple CTRL-Cs and found that a quick DOUBLE CTRL-C copied the selection to the clipboard manager. The copy did NOT include the reference info.
What seems to be a good workaround is to export to the s-pad, and then do the doube-CTRL-C key combo, and that seems to do the job. I hope that the issue between Linux and BA the restricts the proper way to copy/paste is worked out.
--- EDIT ---
But, does not appear to always be consistent.
