Ah, I will experiment, because it has been very frustrating.
  Glad you can repeat the process, because I was beginning to think that I was hallucinating.

  Thanks for explaining this so well, Charles...I will ask Steve about 

I am no great expert either, as you know

On my computers, I get two different menus depending on where I right- 

If I right-click squarely in the center of the graphic of the sign, 
then I get the menu that includes the word copy etc...

But if I right-click a little bit lower or to the side, on the words 
(text), or just a little be off of the graphic...then I get the menu 
you mentioned in your message...(that does not have the word copy in 

So there are two different menus possible I guess...

Sorry you are having so many problems...
