Using Macbook - running Mac Sierra 10.12

PS 2015.15.1



Photoshop is only allowing copy/paste of text created in PS text layers.   When trying to copy/paste text (into PS text layer) from outside sources I.e. Notes, Emails, etc.. nothing happens.  This is a recent change since installing Mac Sierra.  (I can copy/paste text created in outside sources btwn outside sources)


I further noticed that text created in PS text layer can't be copied to outside sources such as Notes and Emails but can be copy/pasted into Word, Excel apps..  


It's almost as if a Left Brain/Right Brain exists as I'm able to Copy/Paste two different things.  I.e. cmnd +v here in the forum will Paste what I've copied from my email,  if cmnd +v in PS it'll Paste what was created in PS.
