Guildhall manages its own clipboard. It behaves pretty much as the clipboard worked in early macOS systems, and that is in fact its design principle. It does not currently import or export the host system clipboard or pasteboard or whatever it's called now. I have some plans to deal with that but the biggest issue is the data conversion. I'm pretty sure I know what to do, but it's a lot of work and most of the time I just haven't needed it.

One thing that will be true is the host and Guildhall clipboards will not overwrite each other. The design philosophy of Guildhall is that you're mostly interested in staying within its scope while using it, so import and export will be rare. Preserving the Guildhall clipboard across shutdown and launch, or application switching more commonly, is more important. I haven't implemented it yet, but once I have the required data translators working I will provide explicit mechanisms for importing and exporting the host clipboard, probably as a hierarchical menu under the Edit menu.
