    How to copy/paste multiple lines in Catalog GUI (with  Ctrl+C).


    Copying multiple lines with Ctrl+C is not allowed in Cataloging GUI when CombinedCharSupported=Y. 
    Instead, use 'Ctrl+S' (Copy Subfield(s)) 'Ctrl+T' (Copy Field(s)) functions.

    The following clarification will be added to the Staff User Guide Chapter 1.6.3 "Combined Characters Support in Catalog Editor" (page 9-10):

    The 'Ctrl+C' function for copy to Windows clipboard works only for a single selected line (highlighted in blue) in the editor.
    When more than one line is selected (highlighted in blue with a thin white line between selected lines) - it is impossible to use the 'Ctrl+C' function.
    Copying multiple selected lines to Windows Clipboard can be done by the 'Ctrl+S' (Copy Subfield(s)) 'Ctrl+T' (Copy Field(s)) functions.
