When I try to cut and paste a block of text within the same document in InDesign, it removes all of the styling. It doesn’t matter if I’m using style sheets or not. I also updated InDesign to the latest version today and it did not resolve the issue. See attached – when I select, copy and paste the left hand-column copy into the right column, all of the styling is lost.CutAndPasteIssue.png

Hi, I'm not actually trying to place the copy from another doc. It's just when I select the content (in this example, the whole block on the right) and paste in the left column, the stylings disappear (no bold, size shrinks down to the same size, etc.)

Does this happen when copying from one document them pasting in another, copying and pasting within the same document, or both? Does this happen with all documents or only some documents? Have you tried deleting preferences?

It happens both within the same doc and when I create a new doc and try to paste it in. I just tried deleting the preferences as you suggested, but the issue persists.

I'm doing the usual selct copy, "command + c", and then "command +v". If I do it using the menu, the option to paste without formatting is actually grayed out and not an option.

Here's the file: https://we.tl/t-K8Xaa5qhDw The copy and paste issue is only happening on my machine. I tested on another computer and it copy and pasted as expected.

Have you try to reinstall indesign to solve this problem?

Also, this problems may occur if you have recently installed a third-party utility

If yes, try to uninstall it and see if you solved the problem
