I am using PSPPIRE on Windows 10, installed from
pspp-20181109-daily-64bits-setup.exe .

Labels cell of that variable in Variable View) I am copying labels from a text
file and pasting them into the 'Value Label' field for each numeric Value
before clicking Add.

I soon noticed that (for instance) if I had previously pasted '+ITM2B', then
even after I copied '+mPCSK1N' and could paste it in other text files with
Ctrl+V, using Ctrl+V in PSPPIRE's Value Label field would instead paste
'+ITM2B' again, no matter how many times I did Ctrl+V.

However, as soon as I right-clicked the Value Label field and selected Paste,
it would past '+mPCSK1N' instead, after which Ctrl+V would consistently paste
'+mPCSK1N' (even if I copied something different to the clipboard from a

I would greatly prefer Ctrl+V to behave the same way as Right-click + Paste,
