Copy + Paste doesn't always work

So they way it should be, and always has been until recently, is when I copy text or images they stay copied no matter how many times I paste them. Now, at best I can only paste once, sometimes I have to go back and copy again before it will even paste that first and only time. This happens both in Indesign and Photoshop. Does this have something to do with a newer "feature" or is something wrong on my end? Does anyone else experience this? It is the simplest thing that should never stop working but is extremely frustrating.

I have a sick feeling this is similar to how Apple unloads apps as soon as you switch to another one, to save memory. If so I may give up on technology.

Hi @daniela30808945 ,

 

We're so sorry to hear about the trouble. Would you mind sharing the version of InDesign & OS so that we can test this on our end? Can you also confirm whether this is happening with specific or multiple files? Does any particular action leads to this, or it happens randomly?

 

Thanks

Rishabh

It happens wth any file, and it's random. Usually I try again and then it works.

Are you using keyboard shortcuts, mouse context menu, or application menu to do the actions?

Have you seen any other problems that might be keyboard related? This sounds like it could be the keyboard.

Nope, I just lost a copied selection from Photoshop while using another keyboard. But thanks.

Affecting two different apps also almost sounds like it could be an OS setting problem, but I couldn't begin to tell you where to look on Mac.

In the meantime, it might be worth resetting the prefs and deleting the cache to see if that makes a difference. See Reset InDesign Preferences and Other Troubleshooting
