Ok so, I just started using Animate and I've been copying things over from Illustrator and pasting them into Animate. I haven't had any problems up until now, Animate won't let me paste anymore. I can't paste in place, in general, or on a new layer. I thought "maybe I have too many layers" so I deleted several, but I still can't paste. I went to another Animate file to see if it was just the file I was currently working on, but even there I can't paste. I restarted the program but that didn't help. How do I paste again?
All those failures suggest that the copy wasn't right. Do you have an Illustrator file we could try, and steps about what you tried to copy and paste?
