shortcut copy key not working

i’m not sure why, but if I highlight something in a DT window and hit good old apple-C, it does not copy, but makes a little beep noise at me. But if I highlight the same thing and choose to copy in the edit menu (which has ?-C right next to it) then it will copy. Any ideas?

That should actually be identical (as both the shortcut and the menu item are usually handled by Cocoa/Mac OS X). What exactly did you select in which view?

I tried it in two different views. I had a separate web window open, and then I tried it with the website opened in the 6th view (whatever its called)- neither worked.
