Copy/Paste from Context Menu AND Ctrl-C/V should work in every applicable window

Moving widely around the various windows of ArcMap 10 there will be places encountered where:both Ctrl-C (copy) / Ctrl-V (paste) and Copy/Paste from a right click (context menu) work fine - this is in most windows.

However, when editing a table field using an Edit Session there is not the option to Paste from a right click - but you can Ctrl-V.

Likewise when you bring up the ArcGIS Online Help from the Help button on the Label Expression dialog you can right click to Copy and Paste example text but you cannot use Ctrl-C & Ctrl-V.

The workaround is obviously to always try the other one if your preferred way is blocked but it would be nice for all applicable windows and dialogs to support both ways for Copy/Paste (& Cut/Ctrl-X).
