StrongED's key shortcuts are extremely configurable, and there have been
several different default configurations over the years.

(a) What happens if she uses the menu entries instead, i.e.
Block->Clipboard->Paste to text?  That removes one factor of
uncertainty when testing, though it's too long-winded for routine use.

(b) What is your definition of 'elsewhere'?   If you're trying to send
clipboard data outside StrongED to another application's window, let
alone to a writable icon, that's entirely dependent on whether the other
application supports a shared global clipboard or not.  If it doesn't,
then nothing will happen.
