That's really the 'Paste Object' option you are looking at in the menu:
<shift><ctrl>V. Once editing a text area, <ctrl>V inserts ("pastes") text
from the text clipboard.

Similarly, <ctrl>X, <ctrl>C, <ctrl>Z, and <ctrl>A perform usual, useful
actions in text areas (but not globally). There are probably more.

To copy text from a selected text area, use the save option in 'Text area
info...' (<shift>F1 or Menu > Objects >). Which, if we are still adding
to a features list, could usefully have a 'Selected text only' option.
