Undocked windows does not run copy, cut, paste actions when they are executed from top menu



How to reproduce:
1. Create a new project
2. Undock any window that has elements that can be copied, pasted, cut
3. Copy/Cut element using the top menu (Edit->Copy or Cut)
4. Paste element using the top menu (Edit->Paste)

Expected result: Element is copied/cut and pasted
Actual result: None of the actions are executed

Reproducible with: 2019.3.0b7, 20201.0a9
Not reproducible with: 2017.4.33f1, 2018.4.11f1, 2019.2.10f1, 2019.3.0a2

  1. Resolution Note (2020.1.X):

    The copy, cut, paste actions executed from the top menu never really work to its full extent on undocked windows. It works in a few cases but is mostly working by accident, so it is not a regression. In order to enable support, it would be a bigger piece of feature work for the team which we may consider in the future, but we don't have the bandwidth for it in the current moment.
