I am using the BOINC client version 7.14.2
Mac OS Catalina version 10.1.2

1. I tried to paste a password onto the BOINC but it does not work. I use Command-C o copy a password and Command-V in the password field for add project does nothing.
2. Cannot add an account manager in the Mac OS version of BOINC
3. Cannot access the top menu bar (Files, View, Activity, Options, Tools, etc)

I managed to find the menu bar of the BOINC and added an account manager.
So 2 and 3 are no longer an issue.

If you notice the Manager does not have an "Edit" menu, so no copy/paste available.

Is it possible for user to make suggestion to implement copy and paste in BOINC for Mac in future release? What is the process?

Search through the issues and if nothing similar found, add a new ticket: https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/issues
Github requires separate registration.
