Kleopatra's clipboard signing operations don't include clearsigning.

Back when PGP 2.6 was the "current" verison, clearsiging of plain 
text e-mails was my most common operation.

If nobody has asked for this to be done in Kleopatra, then, as you

I'm re-learning the basics by trying gpg2 command line operations, 
then seeing how Kleopatra does the equivalent.
