If I copy text from outside Photoshop (i.e. another iPadOS app), I can’t paste it into a text layer inside Photoshop. The reverse is also true.

In my case, I wanted to copy chunks of text from my resume (developed in Photoshop), into an online spellchecker — but can’t do so.

I thought I was the only one. I’m creating a comic book series using Fresco but since they don’t have a text option, I used Photoshop Mobile but I couldn’t paste the text from my script over to Photoshop. I had to manually type it all out. Considering moving this project to Procreate 😞

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.

The ability to paste from the iOS clipboard is not currently a feature in Photoshop on the iPad. We appreciate your feedback regarding freatures that you believe are the highest priority for your workflow. You can vote on that feature here: Photoshop Mobile: Cannot access iPadOS clipboard

This is one of the most basic must haves.. I can get it free on countless other apps so shocked I couldn’t copy/paste. I am really losing my patience with this app it has been a big let down for me so far. I have not found any use for it I just go back and forth between Lightroom and PE. I don’t have a computer anymore just an iPad. Couldn’t afford both so I had to choose.. hoping for a big update soon!

Am composing a children’s book featuring both illustration and text and that it’s impossible to paste text into text boxes is seriously disappointing.

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.

Not to be a dick but whoever made the call to roll out photoshop on mobile without copy and paste I hope got fired.

My Mac is getting work done andI thought I would be able to make do with PSD on IPad but I guess not. Back to Procreate it is seeing as Photoshop for iPad is worthless.

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

Just started using PS on iPad today, and one of the first things I went to do was copy and paste from another app. This seems like a pretty big feature to miss!

Text is crucial, but being able to copy and paste images from other apps is also very important.

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.

Amazing that after 10+ months, there is still no option to paste from the iOS clipboard. What is Adobe actually doing with all the money it gets? They need to spend a larger amount on development and quality control for their apps.

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.

Ya ha pasado casi un año desde que comenzó este hilo y aún no hay un actualización que permita acceder al portapapeles de iPadOS!!! Es una vergüenza que una empresa como Adobe no de soluciones concretas a sus clientes! Copiar y Pegar es una función BASICA!!! No me cabe en la cabeza!!! Una gran decepción!

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.
