Gil, The message means you have issued the copy command (Edit > Copy or Ctrl-c) when there is no selection. I have no idea why double clicking the scroll-up arrow invokes this command. You can confirm this is what is happening my selecting some text, double clicking the arrow, setting an insertion point somewhere else in the document, and pasting. The text that you had selected will have been pasted. You suggest that there are other operations you have performed that result in the same error message. Are you using a customized version of the FrameMaker user interface that may have erroneously mapped several shortcuts to the Copy command? --Lynne Lynne A. Price Text Structure Consulting, Inc.
