ofCopyPaste text using drop down menu

here is an example of how to copy paste unicode text on both mac and pc
with a simple drop-down menu

string text = “bla bla bla”

dropMenu->assign(&text); = creates the menu; (copy paste cut clear that string)

and inside testApp::draw()


for better results use one of the many textbox-addons that are available like ofxTextInputField that allows you to select chars
& copy paste the selected chars from the textbox and not the entire string

In the example I used a dummy textbox class
