Copy to clipboard gesture not saving across gestures.

When I make a multi gesture to go to an app such as: "tab", "Command+A", Command+C and go to another app to paste. The clipboard pastes the last thing on the clipboard and not the one that was expected to copy with the BTT gesture. I have tried to make an AppleScript to "Key code" with System Events and it still does not Copy the highlighted text. I even tried to "Trigger menu bar item" Ie Edit;Copy and this does not work either. The only way I can copy the text is to hold down "Command" and press the "C" key.
