Lightroom: Why is "Copy Settings" and "Paste Settings" not working in both Grid & Develop modules?

I've been using LR since version 2 and I've always been able to Copy Settings and to Paste Settings from both the Grid & Develop modules.  I think this is a bug because with the newest update to LR Classic, that hasn't been working consistently.  Sometimes it'll work.  If I quit the application and re-open it, then it often starts working again.  VERY strange and VERY annoying since I use that very often.

You could try resetting LR's preferences: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/articles-page/how-do-i-reset-lightrooms-preferences/. That magic spell often fixes things when LR's user interface acts up.
