It shows more than the first line. It depends entirely on how large you have the LP Vault window sized. What the original poster meant was that it shows the key without the line breaks that a private key typically contains (e.g. it's now one continuous line). LP appears to replace line breaks with simple spaces. On some simpler text editors that will still appear as line breaks due to word wrapping. But they're not. It's just editor wrapping

I just double checked, and I get the entire key with both methods on OSX, and the private key is still incorrectly formatted.

The above linked photo is from an example key I just made to make it clearer what I mean. The top portion is the key pasted in from LP. It's the same regardless of copy method. It wraps on spaces and certain characters like "/", but that's entirely dependent on the editor. If I turn off word wrapping, it's one continuous line. Notice how "-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----" is in the same line as the actual key? That's not supposed to be there.
The bottom is the correct formatting. It's copied directly from the key. Big difference.
And FYI, I've filed a ticket w/ LastPass support and supposedly they are aware of this issue, but time will tell...
