Good suggestion.

I am sure we can support something like this. It is much like printing 
a filled dataform onto paper. Copying to the clipboard should be 
attainable as shown on the form.

May I suggest, that you add this as a development "request/suggestion" 
for the GCP development which will come soon.

You can add to the development database found at:
