Hello,

I am using Photoshop on my iPad Pro. When I want to copy some text (for example some paragraph from safari / notes, ...) and paste to exist text layer, in Photoshop it paste the same text which I have in layer. When I have there nothing, so it works like I didn't make any copy., 

But in other apps works Copy/Paste correct. It is only in Photoshop.

 

Have anybody same problem? Or do you know how fix this problem? It is really annoying.

 

 

Thanks.

This is a sad joke.  It's 2020 and a multi-billion dollar company cannot implement copy and paste ???? Are you kidding me ?!?!

Why did adobe even bother rolling Photoshop out on iPad? This literally makes the application useless.

 

I can't imagine adding copy and paste requires some feat of computer engineering.

Something is very wrong here. LumaFusion just rolled out a major update in just six months. They have 3+ software engineers. The entire company is eleven people. If you check out the ABOUT in Photoshop iPad - they have 75+ people assigned. Am I missing something?

This is actually ridiculous... you can't copy and paste. You can't upload a psd doc... What do the developers do all day? These are basic functions. I am creating stickers with text and I litterally I have to go through and handtype everything like this is the 1950s

Yes, I just found out about this shocking fact today. As both an artist and programmer myself, the idea that Adobe couldn't afford a couple hours of Swift / C++  coding for clipboard manipulation and considering how absolutely CRITICAL this is to every single professional's workflow on the planet --- one has to ask who is running the company now.

Adobe, if you are paying attention to your forums, then you are hopefully already noticing a trend. I was already on the edge seeing how much more open-source (free) Blender can do than After Effects .... but with this enormous, unconsciouable faux-pas, you have sealed the deal for me. You are not a company that takes its customers seriously. Go ahead and delete all the comments here deriding your oversight team for missing the "door handle on the door". You won't be the first company of your size to make this fundamental error.

 

This, unfortunately, demonstrates just how out of touch you are with real-world, production applications of your products .... and confirms, at least in my mind, how you are quickly and irreversibly losing your position as a leading media-software company. You have really shot yourself in the foot with this one. You could have delayed releasing iPad Photoshop for as long as it took to implement this feature. Someone in a board-room thought otherwise, and now the entire company is going to pay for it. You have lost all credibility. First, Structure Paint acquistion (huge black mark on your reputation) and now this. What's next? New mobile apps can't save or export files? It wouldn't surprise me a bit. The whole lot of you must be either completely stoned or reeling on the edge of bankruptcy and desperate to gain leverage.

What a joke, first I couldn't use the move tool in the normal version of PS due to some glitch now I find out they can't be bothered to do something as simple as copy and paste from clip board.

This is literally ridiculous. Defeats the purpose of even having his program on iPad. Seriously Adobe, think about it. And please remedy the problem at your earliest convenience, for the sake of your professional art clients, i beg of you.

I'm not sure why everyone is saying there is no cut and paste feature-- go to layers panel-there are three dots-click copy then paste.  PS is lacking many features of the full desktop edition but copy and paste is not one of them.

Please, take the time to read a thread's contents before you post a comment. It is possible that Adobe has implemented an update since this thread began, but if you read up to the top of the thread, you will see an Adobe Employee explicitly stated that the feature was not present, and the problem was stil present at least until August / September last year.

 

That being said, I am glad to see that they listed to the customers and have implemented this very needed fix.

Thank you. And in fact the comment I was responding to was from January 2021...  Thanks for the back up.  I find it interesting that people find it interesting that people don't actually take their own advice.

Clipboard copy paste is what people are upset about. The ability to compose a paragraph in an external app then copy and paste it into a text layer in PS for iPad. As far as I can tell this is still not possible and, I gotta join the mob on this one, extremely disappointing.

It'll be there soon.  I get it,  you want all the features on the desktop on the ipad as soon as possible.  The features you want will be there soon.  They're gradually adding them, because they don't want to add too much too fast and have an app that though all the features are there, its extremely buggy and slow.  Just be patient and be sure to suggest features in the app
