And when I uninstalled and re-installed Photoshop, I didn't restore any of my old preferences, so it should be on the default settings. I also did just restore my preferences using the keyboard shortcut.
And an update on the issue: I can paste both text and images into Photoshop from any other program, I just can't copy and paste either from within Photoshop unless I drag it into the creative cloud library first.
I'm using a MacBook pro, OS 10.9.5 Maverick. I have checked my specs and I have all the requirements to run these programs.
I have the same problem today and I was keep on searching for the solution including these advices above but still doesn't work and finally I did my self invented solution. here it is,...............1.restart your computer 2. Open your any version Photoshop 3. Go to edit and click 4. click preference 5.Click Plug-ins & Scratch Disk and select the more space partition in your computer let say D drive or if all are full then you can use your External hard drive.
Hope I can contribute to solve the issue of copy & Paste this is applicable also to the issue of Error problem because of Full disk.

Tho I still don't get it how or why I encounter there problems, they just pop out of nowhere. I still can't figure out what actions that I did was wrong but my solution works well. :)
Good luck for all of us.
Having said that, here's a weird thing - The text I'm trying to paste is a poem that someone sent me in a Facebook post. Paste's fine elsewhere, but not into photoshop. However I CAN copy other text from an email, this web page etc and it pastes into photoshop without an issue! It's just THIS poem isn't pasting.
I've pasted the poem into pages, saved it, re-started the mac, reopened the pages doc, copied and it STILL won't paste into photoshop.
Got me rooted!
