Dreamweaver's cut and paste bug

Every few hours cut and paste stops working in Dreamweaver. The only way to fix this is close all applications, delete the Dreamweaver preferences in the library folder, and then restart all applications. Things will then work for a few hours and then the same issue occurs.

I know Dreamweaver has had numerous cut and paste bugs over the years, though this is the first time I've experienced it. Does anyone know a permanent solution to this problem?

I am using Dreamweaver 18.2 on a MacBook Pro running OS 10.13.4.

Not a fix, but easier than quiting and deleting preferences. Try this:

Open terminal, type "killall pboard" and hit enter.

I've had this happen to me occassionally on my Mac but only certain programs. For instance, I notice that the combination of Firefox with anything seems to cause copy/paste issues every so often. What are the other programs are you experiencing copy/paste issues with and have you tried copying to/from other programs to isolate the issue?

Chrome and Notepad generally. Once Dreamweaver stops cutting and pasting, it seems to affect the pasteboard in general, so you need to restart all three of those applications after the Dreamweaver preferences have been deleted.
