Hi Steffen,

Thank you, middle-clicking my mouse worked like a charm! I can't believe I
didn't think of that myself!

  Well, I normally do it by first marking the text and then middle-click
to paste it. In the unlikely event your mouse only has two buttons, try
to use both at the same time to simulate the middle-click. You won't
need the 'Ctrl+C'.
