I'm still wondering if there is a debug version for PowerPC Macintosh. Can't find one at the logical places.
Also I updated the original post to clarify a couple of ambiguities.
The links we've both provided contain essentially the same information and resources:
I found a link with this title, but no links for a debug version of Flash Player 10 for PowerPC based Macintoshes (I'm on a G5 Dual 2.0)
There's the following link on that page, but I believe it's for a non-debugging version of Flash Player 10:
Yes you're right I didn't look the link at the bottom of your message that was I need to wear glasses, I think this is for a Mac regardless its architecture
I continue to see copy/paste issues (as described in the original post) even with the simplest Flex applications, but only with Flash Player 10 on Macintosh.
If you're using Flash Player 10 on Macintosh, would you please try copy/paste with at this page (and report your results and please specify which release of Flash Player 10 you are using):
My configuration is this:
PowerPC Dual 2.0 G5 / Mac OS 10.4.11)
Flash Player 10.0.12.36 debug release.
Flex Builder 3.3
My version of Flash Player 10 is rather old, ancient I guess, because I haven't been able to find a new debug release for Mac Power PC. Anybody know where that is hiding, or has Adobe abandoned PowerPC for debugging.
Here's my code:

<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute" x="0" y="0" width="936" height="729">
<mx:TextArea x="96" y="148" width="403" height="400" editable="true" wordWrap="true" verticalScrollPolicy="auto"/>
<mx:Text x="96" y="66" text="•ÊInto the field below paste some multi-line text (i.e. text with line breaks)

I also see that problem on an Intel Mac with FlashPlayer 10,0,12,36. MacOS 10.5.7.

I upgraded to FP 10,0,22,87 and I still see the same issue.
And, I definitely see different behavior on Windows XP with FP 10,0,22,87 - the newlines are preserved as one would expect. Is there a workaround for this issue?
Thanks for your reply and the official bug report link:
Your report comes at a perfect time! Late last week I installed a spanking new install of Mac Leopard 10.5.7 and the latest version of Flash Player 10 on on a new hard drive, and I still encountered copy/paste bug every time.
It's fairly astonishing Adobe hasn’t fixed this significant flaw, given all the revs of Flash Player 10, and that this was first reported eight months ago on 10/17/08.
I'll look into the workarounds posted in the bug log.
> The issue seems to be specific to Flash Player 10 Macintosh. There are no copy/paste problems with my Flex application under Flash Player 10 Windows; there are no problems on Mac or Windows under Flash Player 9.
Publishing to Flash Player 9 will solve the problem (... assuming that Flash Player 10 includes Flash Player 9, and I understand that it does.)
Though it's quite easy to choose a Flash Player version in Flash's publish settings, I don't see how to choose a publish setting of Flash Player 9 in Flex 3.
Does anybody know how to publish to Flash Player 9 from Flex??? Since my application doesn't use any FP10-only features, I can continue publishing to Flash Player 9 and simply wait until Adobe fixes the copy/paste issues on Mac Flash Player 10, thus I won't need to use a workarounds in the interim.
Presently I'm publishing a Flex 3 project to Flash Player 10. As reported in this post, I've hit a known Flash Player 10 bug. However the application works fine under Flash Player 9!
Does anybody know how to publish to Flash Player 9 from Flex???
If I can figure this out I'm home free, and I don't have to wait for Adobe to fix the copy/paste bug.
