Hi Bill,

How are you copying the text, are you selecting the text with the mouse, right clicking and hitting copy, or are you selecting with the mouse, hitting Ctrl + C and then pasting it, using either Ctrl + V or with the mouse?

What version of Windows are you running? Windows XP,7,8, 32bit or 64bit...?

What program (Microsoft Word?) are you copying this text from, is it only from this program when you can't paste?

I am copy and pasting using right click. Using Windows 7, try to copy from an Outlook email message 4 or 5 words. Have not tried copying from other programs yet.

Hello Bill,

Thank you for this information, I've been able to reproduce this issue and I've passed it to the developers.

For now, as a workaround, please try to paste the text to the Windows app by using the Ctrl+V shortcut.

Best regards,
