    copy and paste stopped working in photoshop CC

    grabart1 Level 1

      I've been using Photoshop CC since march and this is a new issue. Not previously a problem until today.


      When I select and area to copy, from a JPEG or photoshop PSD photograph, and make a new file to paste it into, the new file comes up the same size as the clipboard contents, as it is meant too, but photoshop will no  longer allow me to paste. The selection EDIT, Paste is still there in black, not greyed out. I temporarily fixed it by restarting my computer and it worked until I closed Photoshop down again and reopened it, problem is back...what is going on?


      Is it to do with preferences and how do I change them to fix this?


      the only thing I've changed recently was telling JPEG files to use photoshop as the default programme to open up in my computer. I changed this because Bridge was no longer showing photoshop as an option when you rightclick an image and chose which file to use to open it. The fix was to close Bridge, chose a jpeg and change the default to photoshop to open it.


      I'm running windows 7 home premium 64 bit.


      any help recieved with thanks....
