I don't remember if we have a feature like this, if you haven't found it,
it is probably missing. I thought you could do it via the clipboard.

For Gpg4win there is no intention to duplicate a different product.
If you are missing this feature then it is probably the case because
nobody added it or it wasn't missed enough. For many files, using
--clearsign does not make a lot of sense.
