My PS CS5 is acting weird lately. My copy and paste sometimes won't copy, but will cut instead. This is during a copy and paste on 1 layer. Any ideas?

To be perfectly honest, I do not know.

1. Try trashing your prefs.
2. Ctrl + alt + shift (Win) on launch or cmmd +option + shift (mac)
3. Ok the dialog.

NOTE: This will trash any settings you have made in PS. You will need to go reset them again.
