It would make sense to change the type to text/plain and rename the
buttons, "Copy List" , "Paste List"
then internal copying complete lists would still function as normal and
also you could paste a list from anywhere you can copy lines of text.

Sorry. possibly you have this by design for a reason Ben, i just looked at
the feature and thought , what?
Am surprised the Copy/Paste buttons are not for single list items, I'm sure
that would seem the usual assumption with most people for buttons like that
in that sort of gui.

At the very least I think changing the button text to "Copy List" , "Paste
List" would explain their current function better.
