GuiXT CopyText problem

Hello everyone,

I am currently starting to use GuiXT (all components installed) and I have run into a problem with the CopyText function.

My goal is to have the script paste the value from Clipboard into the ZCJI3 screen element F[WBS Element]. I tried using the following:

CopyText ToScreen="F[WBS Element]" -fromclipboard

But I got an error saying:

Please specify a text variable as source or as destination.

I tried to circumvent this problem by first CopyTexting from clipboard to a V[ForHelp] and then setting F[WBS Element] to V[ForHelp] but that did not work either. I cannot get the CopyText function to copy anything from the clipboard no matter what I do.

Any suggestions as to where the problem may be?
