That's a shame. It's working fine on a Mac. Have you checked that General Prefs: Export Clipboard is still turned on? A lot of people have had odd results, too, if they didn't remove their Preferences from the last version. You might see if that doesn't clear this up for you.

Howdy Nancy,

I play with text all the time and Win10 is my default machine, but I've never seen the problem that you describe.  Could you please tell me more about it?  Do you have trouble copy any text or specific content?  I'm assuming that you're activating a text layer and making a selection -- how big a selection are you making?  Are you doing something else?  what does the plain text editor report?  Can you paste into another Photoshop type layer?
