Copy to Clipboard in Web Direct.  Whither art thou?

So I know that the standard copy script step doesn't work via web direct, but in the filemaker help there are notes which say...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Which seems to me to be saying that you can use the "Set Selection" script step in Web Direct immediately before using the "Copy" script step, and that it should work.

 

Well it doesn't work for me. Am I missing something or reading it wrong?

 

I've tried I think all the itterations of settings on each of these two steps, also in separate scripts, and together. No dice in Web Direct.

 

I realize there are security concerns. Looked at javascript and flash methods too. None look pretty.

 

What is this Filemaker help note saying? It SEEMS to be saying it's possible.

 

Any help or suggestions for alternatives would be great. (I am not averse to triggering a script, but don't want to use flash methods)

 

Thanks in advance.
