        Hi Josh,

         

        The file you posted fixed the issue for me.

        However I did have to install it both the "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)" directory path you posted. I'm Woking on a Win 7 64x sytem and have both PS CS5 32x and 64x version installed.

         

        Belay my last. I rebooted and the clipboard in PS CS5 64X no longer works. No problem with CS5 32x or CS4 64x.

          I had the exact same problem on my one year old Acer Aspire 5738-6745 laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended 64-bit.

           

          The weird thing is, it only happened to me after I reinstalled windows. It never occurred before.

           

          Anyways, I found a solution. You just have to open Notepad and type in the following:

           

          Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

           

          [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Photoshop\12.0]
          “AlwaysImportClipboard”=dword:00000001

           

          Then save it as AlwaysImportClipbd_ON.reg, close Photoshop if it is opened, and install the registry file.

           

          Doing this worked for me!

           

          Hope it helps!

            this is not working for me..

             

            Still having this issue (alien skin plugins installed)

              jordancameron Community Member

              You should try to uninstall the plugin then.

               

              All I know is that the plugin is not the initial problem, because I have never had it installed.

               

              But seriously, using the registry thingy solved the problem for me.

               

              Sorry I can't help more

                I've been following this thread with interest. It seems every time I upgrade Photoshop I have to go find this registry hack again. CS2, CS3, CS4 and now CS5. But this time it doesn't do the trick for me either. I'm on Win 7 64 bit, no add ins. I hope Adobe keeps looking because there is a problem that is not related to plug - ins, even though it seems plug - ins seem to help push the problem into the forefront.

                  Then I should count myself as lucky! Sorry I can't help further.

                   

                  I hope this gets solved for all you folks who are still struggling!

                    Hi,


                    The config file suplied by Josh H. at Nik should only impact Nik plug-ins, afaik. We have a bug report open and are still investigating the general plug-in SDK documentation. From Nik's findings, one case that can cause problems is triggered by calls made by 3rd party plug-ins, following a sample plug-in from Adobe.

                     

                    I'm not aware where Alien Skin is at invetigating a fix on their side, but will update here when I hear something.

                     

                    It also still isn't clear from the follow-up messages if we might have 2 or more bugs with the same end result of a broken clipboard. From what I've read here, there are 1) users with 3rd party plug-ins that have a problem, which goes away when the plug-ins are disabled, and 2) users without 3rd party plug-ins that have had to result to reg key changes. Is that how others see it? Can those reporting the reg key change as a fix confirm that they aren't running any 3rd party or non-default plug-ins?

                     

                    regards,

                    steve

                      I can report that I'm not running any plug-ins, have tried the registry fix, and still have the problem.

                        Well I should know better than this, but what I just posted is incorrect. It seems that after running the registry fix, you MUST reboot! I apparently had forgotten to do this, and once I rebooted this morning my Photoshop CS5 clipboard is working correctly! My apologies to those who may have scurried off to look at things that did not need looking at.

                          no, even after restart the issue is still there.

                            For what it's worth, when I did the registry hack, I first used notepad to create a .reg file. When it was apparent that it did not work, I used regedit to go look, and Windows 7's security configuration here had apparently prevented the .reg file from causing the entry to be recorded. So I created the entry manually in regedit. You might have a peek - maybe your security settings are like mine.

                              I am running Photoshop CS5 with no plugins. I have the problem intermittently. The clipboard works several times, then does not, retaining the previous clipboard entry. Purging does not help. Restarting Photoshop works. I have not tried the registry hack.

                                I was definitely having this problem on my machine, and the above registry hack fixed it.

                                 

                                Windows XP 32-bit

                                Core 2 Duo

                                Photoshop CS5 12.0 x32

                                 

                                I have also had the same problem on my Win 7 / i7 / 64 machine. I haven't had a chance to see if the hack works on that environment, but I suspect it isn't environment-specific.

                                  As far as I can tell, using Windows 7 x64 and Photoshop CS5, there is no limit to the size of the clipboard it will import, whether or not the AlwaysImportClipboard registry value is set or not.

                                      Read through the thread:

                                       

                                      For newer versions of Photoshop (e.g., CS5) some plug-ins by a particular company were identified as interfering with the clipboard.

                                       

                                      For older versions of Photoshop there's a built-in limit to the size of the clipboard it will import, unless a particular registry value is added.

                                          I'm running CS5 64 on a clean Win 7 64 system. Had problems with the clipboard just as described in this thread. No funky plugins or processes running. Adding the registry entry solved it - however I had to add the registry entry as a QWORD insted of a DWORD, or PS would hang when I attempted pasting.

                                           

                                          Cheers.

                                            I had the clipboard paste problem with CS5 64-Bit while using Color Efex Pro. Removing the filter restored normal clipboard function. Same filter with PSE 9 did not cause the problem as it's 32-bit.

                                            Download of the config file fix posted by NIK Software wasn't successful at first, though I was successful after getting a tip from Dropbox support to add the ?dl=1 parameter to the url as follows:

                                            http://dl.dropbox.com/u/794472/SelToolInst.cfg?dl=1
                                            Copying the cfg file to the Selective Tool folder as described in the NIK Software post 88 solved the problem.

                                              Strangest thing happened today. I installed an extra plugin (knoll light factory) alongside my two already installed ones (alien skin exposure en alien skin blow up) an as by magic the issue is gone... I now can copy and paste as I should.

                                               

                                              No idea how this happened but after i installed it I was curious and tried to paste.

                                              Either way -> happy!

                                                One caution though:  An old software developer's adage:  If a problem seems to go away for no reason, it will usually come back by itself.

                                                 

                                                I hope your situation proves this adage wrong.

                                                    I'm having the same problem on 64-bit Win7. No plug-ins installed, tried the registry hack -- no luck. However, the type of seleciton makes a difference.

                                                     

                                                    • If I simply select a layer (bounding box appears with handles) and click the Edit menu, the Copy commands are disabled
                                                    • If I make a selection within the layer (marching ants appear) the Copy commands are enabled
                                                    • If I CTRL+Click the thumbnail in the Layers panel (marching ants appear) the Copy commands are enabled

                                                     

                                                    Is anyone else noticing these different behaviors? This issue basically renders Photoshop unusable for serious production work, and it's clear this issue is affecting a large number of users. Adobe needs to get on this issue.

                                                      I think this is normal behavior. To copy the contents of a layer you need to Select All (Ctrl-A) and then the Copy command will be available.

                                                        CTRL+A selects all, but to copy a layer press CTRL+J or click Layer > New > Layer via Copy.

                                                            We've spent a lot of time on this, and found that the causes were third party plugins and external applications (especially JDownloader).

                                                            We've forwarded all our findings to Microsoft, but there's currently nothing we can do about it.

                                                              Chris - Thanks very much for the update. From all the work done to the present, do you have any guidance for Win7/64-bit CS5 users? For example, it seems prudent to check for normal clipboard function after installing any new plugin.

                                                                Also note that the issue appears even without any extra Photoshop plugins or out-of-the-ordinary programs installed; my clipboard issues existed on a completely clean install. I only had PS+BridgeCS5, 3dsmax2011, Autocad2011, Lotus Notes and MS Office installed. Clipboarding between the other applications worked flawlessly. Sure, Notes is a possible culprit... it's a weird piece of software. But what makes CS5 clipboard access different from that of the other applications?
