There was an error while copying to the Clipboard. An internal error occurred.

Copy link to clipboard

Well, this question has been on for a long time but everyone seems to ignore it, so I'll just give it another shot.
I get this error when trying to copy something.

Most of the time, if i ignore the error I can still find it in the clipboard.

Sometimes I'm lucky and it doesn't happen (using the same document), so this clears that it has no copyright protection.

Yesterday I worked all day on a document with no problems, but today I'm losing a lot of time dealing with the problem and trying to fix it. (hope this clears that I have all software up to date and no plugins missing)

The thing is that I often work on asian character texts and ignoring the error does no good because all I have left in the clipboard is junk data (an example of copied text: ‘¾—zŒõ”­“dƒVƒXƒeƒ€‚ÌLCA)

If I try to copy again, sometimes it works (I have to try from 3 up to more than 15 times though), but I will get the error when I try copying the next word.
I really doubt there's an instant solution for this, so all I'm asking is for you to stop ignoring this issue and try to release an update with a fix for this before people start switching to other programs.
Pretty please??
Thank you

P.S.

Clipboard Error: internal problem occured.

The solution that worked for me is this:

With the pdf file open. Go to Edit on the top left  bar. Go to Preferences. On the left side, go to Security (Enhanced) 

then under the Sandbox Protections,  uncheck the 1st check box "Enable protected mode at start up (Preview)"

Then click okay.  

This worked for me. I have no idea how the checkbox got checked. But it made every .pdf file unable to copy and paste to another file or program.
