Cut and Paste. I have CS5 extended installed using XP on a desktop and Win7 on a laptop. All files are up to date. When I start mini bridge, selected the files I want to use and they are opened in photoshop and I try to copy and paste (using either the key board shortcuts or the tool bar) I am unable to paste a image into a new file, (the move tool works great but much quicker using copy and paste). It might work the first time but after that nothing happens (you can use paste special (shift-control-V). If nothing happens, create a new layer hit ctrl-v and your image is pasted into the file . This only happens when you use mini bridge. Exit out and restart photoshop open Big Bridge( not mini bridge) select the file/files you want to paste into your file, open them in photoshop once opened use the keyboard short cut keys or the tool bar keys to select the file switch to file you want to copy and paste press Ctrl-V and your image/s is pasted into the file. I only discovered this a couple days ago and I am unable to find a answer or anyone who have heard of this. Any help or a explation to the above will be greatly appreciated.

What happens if you hit the Esc key then hit Ctrl + V to paste?
