There seem to be a limit when copying records in the table of attributes and pasting them into a text editor. I have tested a few vectors and the limit seems to be around 65000 columns (it copy/paste also the nodes coordinate, that translates in different columns for each node). I cannot find any reference about this limit (if is known).

A warning should be shown when is the case, maybe when the "copy selected rows to clipboard (ctrl-c)" is clicked.

In general I found of a little use to have copied/pasted also the nodes coordinates, so it will see very well suited a checkbox to choose copy or not also the nodes coordinates.

I think the default should be not to copy coordinates
