handle things better and faster by using their own clipboard. The
OS supports this by, when you switch to another application, having
the app being switched from copy its clipboard to the system one.
WordPerfect has its own clipboard. Select text in WP and copy; that
puts it on WP's clipboard. Then click on the desktop to activate the
Finder. That puts the copied text in the system (here, in SheepShaver's)
clipboard. Switch from SS to another OSX app, and the text then
goes to the OSX clipboard.
Going the other way: copy text in OSX, switch to SS and, if WP is
the active app in SS, click on the SS desktop, and then activate WP
