Did you try that in Office yet?
Seriously, Copy is context dependent.
I'm not suggesting a change of use for the keys, but a right-click (Edit) context menu option to Copy (or Cut) the Image File and another to Paste it, as well as my suggestion for Drag'n'Drop to other programs.
Does not really fly in the context of this application. You can already move or copy via the mouse.

This statement of yours worries me
Are you saying the embedded SQLite databases are suspect or (as I presume) that the Library Catalogs in ASP are neutered ?
Nothing like that....
What could one do in Bibble that you now cannot do with Catalogs in ASP?
Nothing. The catalogs in Bibble where already stillborn, basically the limited same functionality.
I did read your note that Metadata searches can now span multiple Catalogs in the Library.
That already worked in B5.
- There are no DB queries. Only the silly browser which does not have enough functionality perform a simple query like "show me all images from Rome not shot with a D200".
- No wildcard searches
- Hierarchical keywords and flat keywords mixed in the same namespace, resulting in a UI mess and no way to keep one of the sets private. As hierarchical keywords are non standard, they are a pita to export and agencies are not too keen on them.
- No saved searches
- No virtual folders, so you can not put a custom hierarchy over the DB (could be done with hierarchical keywords if they where separate, but right now it is too messy to contemplate)
- No auto detection of changed folders for auto or confirmed rescan of folders.
- No scripting, therefore no automation for complex tasks (Like "show me all of my images that are online at SmugMug but are marked private" for example)
- No incremental name completion when entering keywords
- No variable substitution when entering keywords
