Copy/paste is super cumbersome when using web exports on Mac. It appears that to reliably copy, I have to press ctrl-C and then cmd-C after text is written to the clipboard, and to get pastes to work I have to press cmd-V and then ctrl-V for PICO-8 to pick up the paste.

Is there a better way to do this? If not, can Mac exports be updated to only need cmd-C and cmd-V? I'd love to cut down the instructions on Tiny Drops...

It looks like this also may be affecting folks using the EDU edition: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=51921

OMG, @luchak thx for posting this. Not just exports, but the Mac binary itself. I often open two or more instances via the terminal but copy/paste between them has always seemed to only work randomly. I work in both Linux and MacOS and sometimes get Ctrl/Cmd confused, and now I know this confusion is what makes it work. It appears doing Ctrl+C followed by Cmd+C activates the clipboard somehow, then any combination of Ctrl/Cmd + V works for pasting in the other instance. This is so much better than opening the cart in my text editor and counting lines, lol!

Edit: It appears there's maybe two clipboards at work because whatever I just did, Cmd+V pastes one thing and Ctrl+V pastes the previous thing or something. lol, I'm so confused, but I'm glad it sort of works if I spam both copy/paste combos.
