Hi SowPing,

I'm experiencing the same issue!

Obviously, I started . by purging all preferences from PS and AI. Then restart Macbook. 

To be clear:

  1. Problem #1: I can no longer copy-paste a path from PS to AI, but I can copy-drag from PS to AI (AI to PS still works perfectly).
  2. Problem #2: whenever I want to copy-paste a path within Photoshop, it copies the whole layer/folder on which the path is applied.

When doing so, I am using the Path Selection Tool and it did work perfectly until yesterday.

The only work-around - still painful - is to cut and paste. But this is very annoying when you don't want to cut...

There's clearly a PS bug, but I cannot see where.

Thanks for your help!
