Thanks for elaborating. I neglected to add in this detail.
Full process is

  Select the object to be edited
  FILE | SAVE OBJECTS   to file of your choice
  bring up any text editor
    fix up as needed
  FILE | MERGE
    plop down where you want it

For small programs you can edit the whole program file, though
this is more dangerous since you can corrupt it. Worst that can happen
above is that you mess up a single object.

Though this workaround works, I would agree with the original note
that it would be very nice to have "normal" cut and paste in VEE objects.
