Context menu pastes between tabs

    If I am in the editor and I copy a value and open the editor in another tab, doing a simple paste (ctrl+v) pastes the value however selecting to 'Paste As Value' or any other paste option from the context menu does nothing. In excel 365 if I have two different workbooks open in different tabs I can do a copy of a value in one, right click, select 'Paste as Value' or any of the other options, and it will appropriately paste in the expected value. Is this a bug within the spreadJS editor? And if so is it able to be fixed?

    The Devs informed us that This is not supported, and it looks like the reason those work in excel is because they have a server-side part that handles it. If there is no internet after two Excel online sheets are opened, then you will notice that they can't copy/paste effectively because it can't access the server-side part of the application.
