Hi Jeff,

I would still place the clipboard option into the file menu. Preferably
below the Export Entry because it would be more logical to find. The
current location of the clipboard item is because Eeschema also located
this menu item in the exports menu and I simpily tried for consistency.

Regards, Thomas
