Hi Laurent,

Sorry, but copy and paste does not work with single <hr /> elements (at 
least in Windows). If you copy the line, place the cursor in another 
position and then paste, the line is not copied.

> I guess that in this case the other elements are deleted, right ?

If you copy and paste in the same position, the line just disappear!.

> However, selecting just a <hr /> is not always easy in the formatted view and it's sometimes 
preferable to use the Structure view to do that.

I agree that sometimes it is not easy to select the <hr />, but this 
difficulty should be considered another Amaya bug. An editor must copy 
and paste without problems, mustn't it?
