copy & paste from Indesign into notepad/word/excel does not work. I can copy & paste within Indesign.
it drives me crazy. It used to work until Friday, now it doesn't work any longer. I've restartet my computer, reinstalled Indesign, deleted Indesign and started with a new Indesign installation. All to no avail.
System: Win7 Ultimate
What am I doing wrong? Is there anything I can do, but a new installation of my system?
@Peter: thanks for your reply!
> What, besides all that uninstalling/reinstalling changed before it stopped?
good question - afaik nothing changed. Strange because copy & paste from other Adobe products liks Arcobat, Illustrator and Photoshop works fine.
So it must be a setting within Indesign I haven't seen in 10 years I've been using it.
> Have you considered using System Restore to take the system back to Thursday?
No and I'm reluctant to use it. Because it must be a setting within Indesign.

where do I find these?

I know - but it worked fine for the last 12 month. That's why I came here hoping to get some help...
Edit > Preferences > Clipboard handling...
If it worked on Thursday and stopped on Friday, and you didn't change anything in ID, it's probably a Windows update.
You can try trashing the prefs, but as Bob said, you're lucky to even get CS2 to run. See Replace Your Preferences
