Clipboard gets cleared when new slide or layer is created

I'm not sure where to go to make a formal recommendation/request for future updates to Storyline but...It's really frustrating that the clipboard gets cleared when you insert a slide or slide layer.

Many times I have copied objects to my clipboard and inserted a new slide or slide layer intending to paste those objects onto it only to find out that my clipboard has been cleared once I insert the slide or slide layer. It's the same if you do either insert or duplicate slides or layers.

I spoke to the developers about this and it is a copy and paste and clears the clipboard, it has caught me out, a few times until I asked why.  I think it looks like Powerpoint for familiarity it is not meant to have feature parity, and is a different product.

I would prefer it not to use the clipboard though
