Presenter '13 still using clipboard during publishing?

I found a post from 2009 about Presenter using the Windows clipboard during the publishing process without letting the user know about it.  This still seems to be the case!  Copy and paste of text don't work correctly during a publish and now I'm concerned that if I do a copy of something else during a publish (like a web link or an email address to actually multi-task while publishing), I'm going to corrupt the publish.

Is this still the case?  Could a copy of text or something else during a publish corrupt the publish?

I've had this copy/paste issue come up with me with Articulate 2013. It doesn't seem to affect the published content at all. It just makes copy and pasting a bit of a pain since it can take a few tries before you paste whatever it is that you wanted to paste. I was publishing in Chinese characters, so the nature of the text might have meant that it used the clipboard. I don't remember having the issue when publishing in English or other languages that use the same alphabet, so I think like Leslie said, it can happen in some cases (but not necessarily all).

I was publishing Chinese as well!  That must be it.  I kept pasting Chinese characters after copying email addresses and web links and it didn't work correctly again until publishing was complete.
