In DesireData, just do Ctrl+n Ctrl+v

In DesireData, there's no difference between "text form" of copy/paste and 
non-"text form"... there is no non-"text form" anymore, really.

Even in PureData, there's never been a non-"text form" of copy/paste, it's 
just that PureData hides its private clipboard, and that DesireData does 
not use a private clipboard. (except Ctrl+d, but then, that's normal)
