AutoCAD LT 2011 upgrade - copy and paste on right click menu

We have just installed the upgrade to LT 2011 and there are a number of welcome new features (e.g.. SELECTSIMILAR and HATCHTOBACK).
However, one very annoying change is the the right click menu to action copy/copy with base point/paste/paste as block now requires an extra action through the sub-level 'clipboard'. Effectively, the shortcut menu is now slower than using keyboard shortcuts or toolbars.
Is there a system variable to deal with this and make the shortcut menu effective?

Are you needing to limit yourself to only right-clicking? CTRL+SHIFT+C and
CTRL+SHIFT+V are not that hard to master.

And as in all versions of LT to date, you can re-arrange the right-click
menus to suit your needs: CUI command, help yourself.

If your right handed.
Yes we all have our burdens. The numeric keyboard on the right side is great for me.

And where a multi-button mouse comes in handy too.

Open CUI
