I don't think this will be possible as requested. Modern browsers limit access to the user's clipboard for security reasons. For instance, try the Paste button (second button on the second row) at this demo http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/tryit/jquery_plugin.php. I get errors in FF4, Safari, and Chrome.

It's possible to do a partial implementation in one of a few ways. There could be a 'select all' button, which does nothing but highlight all the text. Then the user must manually copy the text. Or there could be a button that opens a new window with all text selected. The new window wouldn't have any function other than to draw attention to the fact that clicking the button has actually done something.

I'd say that a select-all button would be good.

What do you think about a Print button? If we popped up a window with just the doc and then started the print function, users could decide to print on paper or print to PDF. A separate ticket, possibly.

If you think it'd be useful, it's a separate ticket.
