Notes

As usual there's a batch of bug fixes, changes and this time a bit of work on startup performance too. However there's a couple of additions worth highlighting:

Paste menu options are back. However, this uses a "fake clipboard", because Javascript can't actually cause a paste to happen. Basically if you use the Ctrl+V shortcut or choose "Paste" from the browser menu, a real paste happens. But when you choose 'Paste' from a menu in C3, it just uses the last thing you copied in that window. This allows for more intuitive use of copy-paste, especially on form factors without a keyboard. But be aware that you can't use the menu option to do things like paste between different copies of C3 - only things you copied in the same editor.

There's also a new browser tab preview mode available in Settings. This always opens a full browser tab when you click Preview, even when run from the desktop without the usual browser UI. One reason this may be useful is to then open Chrome's dev tools and access features like Device Mode which are only available in tabbed browsing mode.

As before we're still getting lots of great feedback and working hard to keep improving Construct 3. We'll have more updates soon!
