I am using PSPPIRE on Windows 10, installed from pspp-20181109-daily-64bits-setup.exe .

When setting Value Labels for a variable (from double-clicking on the Value Labels cell of that variable in Variable View) I am copying labels from a text file and pasting them into the 'Value Label' field for each numeric Value before clicking Add.

I soon noticed that (for instance) if I had previously pasted '+ITM2B', then even after I copied '+mPCSK1N' and could paste it in other text files with Ctrl+V, using Ctrl+V in PSPPIRE's Value Label field would instead paste '+ITM2B' again, no matter how many times I did Ctrl+V.

However, as soon as I right-clicked the Value Label field and selected Paste, it would past '+mPCSK1N' instead, after which Ctrl+V would consistently paste '+mPCSK1N' (even if I copied something different to the clipboard from a textbook).

I would greatly prefer Ctrl+V to behave the same way as Right-click + Paste, please!
