If you are working with non-editable regions of a template, you can run into this.
Nope, as I said, it happens even on brand new blank documents. It doesn't matter what kind of document it is, what I'm trying to paste, or where I'm trying to paste it. The Paste option is not there. The only way I can paste at all is by using Ctrl+v in the code view.
pardon, only to be on the right track, before using Ctrl+V you "mark" a word, a table etc. and then Ctrl+C, ok? Can you use shift + insert instead?
Did you "play" a little bit with your ... (sorry I don't know the English technical term for it) > see screenshots of my German DW:
Hi! It looks like shift-insert does work! So I suppose that will help while I'm figuring out what the problem is.
Your screenshots don't look familiar to me, I don't think we have the same version.
Ah! Ok, I see it now. But I don't see anything in there that is fixing my problem.
Have you checked to see if your keyboard shortcuts have been changed?
Edit/Keyboard Shortcuts in the file menu, then look under the edit section (#2 I think on the list) That might explain why the Ctrl + C doesn't work. The factory set cannot be changed, but possibly someone/somehow/somewhere, created a duplicate set that can be changed.
Just a thought.
No, it's not really the shortcuts that are the problem. I can ctrl+C to copy and then I can paste it into the code using ctrl+V (or into any other non-Dreamweaver document). But I can't ctrl+V to paste into design view, and there is a blank space where "Paste" would normally appear in the right-click and Edit menus, regardless of where I'm trying to paste.
So, in summary:
- can't paste in Design view at all
- can only paste into Code view using Ctrl+V
- doesn't matter what I copy or where I copy it from (including other non-DW documents)
- Paste option is completely missing from menus
Here are some screen shots (This is after I created a new blank document (no template) and typed in some plain text, and copied one of the words):
The only thing that I can think of is that your preferences are corrupt. I am not sure that will fix your problem, but it might be worth a try. Not sure if your on Windows or Mac (my guess).

Review it before you do it.
Sorry I can't help.
Thanks for the reply!
I did some Googling, and found a site that had advice for fixing a similar problem, so I tried that, and it worked!
What I did was delete this file in the Configuration folder: WinFileCache-*.dat
