Pasting when cutting text from the room puts it directly into the room instead of the message entry box

Say I'm copying something someone has said to quote it, I'd expect selecting text in the room then pressing ⌘C, ⌘V to put the text into the message entry box. Instead it gets pasted directly into the room.

    Hi Chris,

    indeed - I need to do some work here. Treating 'paste' the same as drag-and-drop has meant that, for the most part, Propane gets it right as far as "do what I mean, not what I say" goes.

    But the times when it gets it wrong... it's a serious violation of the principle of least surprise.

    Thanks for the feedback,

    I've gotten bitten by this, as well.
