    Just playing with v5.50 and noticed two things that I think (but can't definitely remember) are different from v5.00.

    A watch expression cannot now start with a parenthesis so "x+y" evaluates OK but "(x+y)" produces an "Unable to evaluate expression" error. However "0+(x+y)" DOES evaluate correctly:confused:

    Copy and paste don't work in Watch and Value fields. I am sure that before I could copy a complex expression from the source code and paste it into a Watch field - or do I misremember?

    You could paste data in the a Watch field using the mouse (right click and choose paste).
    We will further check your first point.

    Right! I always use Ctl-C and Ctl-V for copying and pasting

    You can also use Ctrl-Insert (Copy) and Shift-Insert (Paste)

    Another way is to combine the (still working) old part with the new way since only the insert has to be different.
    In other words, you an do

    Ctrl+C (Copy) and then Shift-Insert (Paste)
