I need general clipboard funktions that do not work in InDesign 2021.

At my PC it is possible to copy/paste anything only inside InDesign.

Yes, as mentioned, you can copy and paste sections – I thought you might want a more comprehensive solution.

To sum up the problem:
When copying any text in InDesign, the *Windows* clipboard becomes empty even if there was anything.
However, it is possible to paste *into InDesign* any text from InDesign and any other text from outside of InDesign.
Resetting settings using Ctrl-Shift-Del at InDesign start and changing settings “Copy/paste in PDF format” didn’t help.
