Cut/Copy/Paste and Drag & Drop Functionality

The cut, copy, and paste operations work in the bean and application versions of Marvin, and also in the applets. However, because of security reasons, the awt applets perform these operations using a local clipboard inside the JVM process. The non-applet versions of Marvin and the signed swing Marvin applets are allowed to use the system clipboard.

Drag & drop operations are possible in the Swing version of the Marvin applets, the Marvin Beans, and the MarvinSketch applications.
