After your suggestion I made a few changes, and now I can paste using the key combos. I can't say exactly what I changed, because I can't seem to get it back to the errant configuration. At least not without restarting X. I've been having another problem since I changed the klipper settings. Now when I paste, I often lose focus in the notebook, and the only thing I have found that gives it back is to click with the mouse. That was the whole reason for my not using button 2 in the first place. I don't like taking my hands of the keyboard. If I could find a way to code button 2 into a key chord, I would be quite happy. >> I tried it under fvwm and the same thing happens.

Perhaps it has to do with what is in the buffer Shift+Insert is pulling from? I've been told by WRI techsupport that new and wonderful things are in the works regarding the FrontEnd. No one is saying much more. -- The Mathematica Wiki: http://www.mathematica-users.org/ Math for Comp Sci http://www.ifi.unizh.ch/math/bmwcs/master.html Math for the WWW: http://www.w3.org/Math/
