How 'bout some info like operating system and language, fonts used etc.? Copy&Paste of text is perfectly possible - people do it all the time, so your blockage has a specific reason which could be anything from using a crappy font to your system language being set in odd ways to external apps running at the same time doing wierd things to the clipboard. Provide more info.
Allow me to be slightly embarrassed - you must be exactly right. This morning I went back and tried again, and it worked perfectly!
Still makes me wonder why it didn't work yesterday - I restarted Adobe but didn't restart the computer like I did over night.
Windows 7 Pro (64-bit)
Intel i7 X980 3.33GHz

Running Adobe Production Premium CS4
AE version 220.127.116.11
Font used: Adobe Caslon Pro
Copied from character map with font: Adobe Caslon Pro
Everything in English (US)
I had a project in AE that was 80 seconds long, no external video footage but all built in AE at 1280 X 720, 30 fps
I'm guessing some background process maybe messed the clipboard up? Anyway, it works now and I guess it was a one-time occurence. If I can ever recreate this repeatedly - I'll be back here!

I hope you actually mean 29.97 fps. Since these are credits for video, you'll want to make sure the frame rate matches the video.
The chances of the frame rate actually being 30 are extremely remote, and you'll want to double-check to avoid problems later.
It was 30 fps but that was the first thing I checked and changed it to 29.97 fps. It makes no difference.
True, it won't affect your current problem. But it will avoid a different problem later.
have the same problem for the last 2 ye
AE 7.0 start the prog and paste works fine
, after a hour or so won't paste ty
pe untill after effects is restarted.
Very annoying and bad for productivity
, anyone have any ideas?
Not much point to reviving such old threads, I'm afraid, especially since you are still using AE 7. Many of the issues you may experience have been fixed in CS4/ CS5/ CS5.5, so for what it's worth, you should simply consider upgrading, especially since many of these problems come from outside and are simply compatibility issues of running older software on specific operating systems...
I have AE CS6 and I am still affected by this bug occasionally. The solution is to restart AE. Not a very elegant one..
