Cannot copy text in text box, closing file seems to fix it

Recommended Posts

I cannot copy the text in a text box created used the frame text tool. The clipboard is empty. Vector shapes copy just fine into the clipboard memory. But copying text doesn't work. I currently work around it by printing, then previewing in the Preview app from where I can highlight and copy text. Closing and reopening the file seems to fix the problem. So it's just an annoyance, but still rather frustrating.

Hi @solipsist,

Welcome to the forums. 

What app are you using? What clipboard manager do you use? What MacOS version have you got? Have you tried the 1.7 beta? Does that work?

Thanks,

Gabe.

Affinity Designer 1.6.1 on Mac.

I use Paste 2.4.3 to manage the clipboard.

MacOS 10.13.6 (17G6030).

Haven't tried the beta.
