I have tried testing this issue at my end and its working fine for me. I am on Windows 10 and using PS CC 2018.
You may try an reset the Photoshop preferences back to defaults and check if that helps.
Refer: Preferences in Photoshop
I reinstalled Photoshop 2017 on my PC and everything works fine. I updated my laptop to Photoshop 2018 and I'm having the same problem that I had on my PC. As you suggested I set my preferences back to default and that didn't work.
I've been using Photoshop since version 6 and I've never had any problems copying and pasting.
So for now I'll just continue to use 2017. When an update for 2018 come out I'll try that and see if it works.
I do appreciate the reply.
Have a great day,
Thanks for the update, I have tried to reproduce this issue at my end and it does allow me to paste the date in Filename section.
I may be not following the correct workflow, Is it possible for you to share the video of the issue.
I've reinstalled version 19 and tried to copy and paste the date again but
it doesn't paste.
Would you please try this. Open an image then type a date in the file name.
Before saving the image select and copy the date then save and close the
Open a different image and see if you can paste the date in this image.
If you can then I'm not sure what's going on. Like I've said I've been
using this process for years without any problems.
Again I appreciate your reply.
Have a great day,

I am having the same issue.
My work flow includes draging several files as layers into one file (a scrapbook page with several photos, if that helps), and renaming each layer to the file name it originated from by using "save-as", copying the file name, hiting cancel on the save windows and pasting the copied name into the relevant layer in the page file.
Since the last upgrade, after hitting "cancel" the clipboard is wiped clean and I don't have the file name anymore (before hiting cancel I do - tried pasting it into notepad - no problems there).
A fix on that would be much appreciated!
I am happy to announce that this issue should be resolved in the release of Photoshop that just went live, 19.1. Please open your Creative Cloud desktop app, update Photoshop and try it out!

It's not working for me. Everything up to date. I had a workaround by copying the necessary text from Word and pasting it into my file name but now that's stopped working. It's slowing up my processing terribly.
