Please add a 'Copy to clipboard' option

Idea

Since clipping an article to an existing note is not possible, please add a 'Copy to clipboard' option to the web clipper. Such an option will help users to copy the clipped content to an existing note easily.

Hi.  In most OS's it's already possible to copy some or all of a page to the clipboard and then into an existing note; although if you do that with two HTML clips,  the formatting will usually react badly - which is possibly why Evernote don;t,  and maybe can't, paste one clip into another.  Worst case - you can use screen shots rather than clips,  or clip the content into separate notes and merge them later,  or link them with titles, tags or Table of Contents notes into one narrative.  Some ingenuity may be required,  but it is possible to capture pretty much anything you require - just not wholly with Clipper.

Since the current software can merge two notes without a formatting disaster, it seems odd that appending is so difficult. It seems like basically the same operation.

A note is an HTML clip translated into Evernote's ENML code - a 'container' that safely isolates and displays the content in different OS's.  Merging two notes is like putting two boxes inside a larger one - still separated  Evernote would have to complete a clip,  create a note,  then merge the two notes (in which process the two single notes wind up in Trash and a new double note is created)...

Just seems a little complicated to do on the fly (and within a reasonable time) while clipping.  Not saying it won't,  or shouldn't be an option - just that it ain't the way things work now.
