Good to hear that you are using all the different ways that VEDIT can copy/paste blocks. Yes, "Copy to cursor" is a bit slower, but should still be faster than using the Clipboard.
I don't think I have ever been able to copy more than 32 or 64 megs of
text to the Win clipboard using any text editor; and that after a lot of disk churning. I believe the clipboard contents must be memory resident, the disk churning is an attempt to swap other programs out to disk.
In any case, it is better to use the non-clipboard methods of copy/paste.
