Gradual copy paste issues in Illustrator and to Indesign

Copy link to clipboard

Copied

Good day,

 

I've been experiencing an issue on my work laptop for about a month now with the copy paste function in Illustrator. At first I thought it may have been a bug in the new update, but I do not experience this issue on my personal desktop, using the same files.

 

I've read in a few similar though very old threads here that a anti-virus may interfere with this function, so I uninstalled those. Sadly, nothing changed. I've also tried turning on and off "Include SVG code" with no success.

 

Here's what happens:
I create a new file (or open an older one) and start making shapes. I group some shapes together and go in and out of the groups, copypasting some elements. This works for about 1-5 minutes, then gradually I start to notice it isn't copying or pasting anymore. This gradually becomes worse and worse untill it becomes unmanageble to work with.

 

I am not extremely tech savy, so if there are any logs I could share, please let me know where I could find these 🙂

 

Any help is apreciated, thank you!

I forgot to add that the copy paste stops working in general, also outside of grouped elements.
