Been using Photoshop for more than 20 years now. All of the sudden, these paste options, which I use regularly, no longer appear or do not work as expected. Please help!

Both Windows 10 and Mac - same issue, but after experimenting I can see that it's actually the copy function that seems to be at issue. If I copy using CTRL-C on Windows 10, or Mac's copy shortcut, as I normally do, it does not work. But if I use the toolbar "Copy" it does work. I never use the toolbar copy but use only the shortcuts on keyboards, so, I don't know what's up but I will use the new method from now on.

Could you please post a meaningful screenshot with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Channels, Options Bar, …) visible?

Works fine for me. PC or Mac - looks like a mac. Operating system? Photoshop version - I'm using 21.2.3 - just updated the other day. Where are you copying from? Try a different workflow. I never use the drop down menu, I prefer to simply drag and drop from the desktop, my library or Bridge.

Resetting preferences did not work. The solution at hand is to use copy
command from the toolbar vs using keyboard shortcut on either mac or
windows for me.

Is any Layer selected? 

 

What have you done for trouble-shooting so far? 

Restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be a good starting point:

The different ways of triggering the copying should not make a difference. 

 

Does the selected Tool have any influence on the issue? 

What are the image’s Color Mode and Bit Depth? (Because you are working in tabbed display one cannot discern that in the screenshots.)

Color depth is 32 bit. RGB mode.

Well, every time I use Photoshop (version 21.2.3) now, a debug log appears with nothing in it.

Why 32bit? 

 

As for the Debug Log please do a Forum search, that has come up repeatedly lately.

Does the behaviour also occur if you convert the image to 16bit or 8bit before pasting?

Yes, this has been tested. Bit depth does not matter in this case.
