It should work first time what OS what PS version what Video Card and driver do you use?
Good questions. I'm on an Imac i7 processor with 12gb ram. PS 13.0.
Is it 13.0 or 13.0.1?
Find out in Help > System Info.
If it is 13.0, hit Help > Update and run all updates. The current version is 13.0.1. This should mostly fix the problem.
If it doesnt, I'd suspect the latency due to - probably - the clipboard size? Sometimes, it takes a few seconds for the data you 'Copy' to go to clipboard. Hitting 'Paste' before it is fully copied will not give you any output - because your clipboard is empty. To rule out this possibility, try this:
- Copy something the first time in a document in PS
- Hit Paste on a new document in PS (2 times, in your case)
- Copy something else from within PS
- Hit Paste in another document again - see if the first time paste doesn't work - or if it does and if it pastes the 1st Copied date or the latter
Let us know how it goes.
