ArchiCAD 22 - copy and paste within text boxes

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi All,
I am having an issue where i am trying to copy partial text within a text box and paste it into another text box. It looks like the text doesn't even copy to the clipboard when I select "copy" and hence when I paste there is nothing! My colleague has the same problem. We are using ArchiCAD 22. If we copy and paste text from elsewhere, such as Notepad, it seems to work fine. It only happens when trying to copy from text box to text box within ArchiCAD. Is this a bug? Has anyone else had this issue?
Thanks

That is curious. Try to install the latest AC22 update if you have not already. Let's see if that helps.

I have AC20, 21 & 22. It happens in all these versions. The clipboard seems to working fins with other programs for text - it's seems it's only AC where text doesn't copy and paste.

I am wondering if this may be caused by some interference by another program.
Try to restart your system, then exit all applications that are not needed.
Then check if copy-paste works, because if it does then some other app is interfering with copy-paste or the clipboard somehow.
