Command-V won't "paste"

Posted:
in Genius Bar edited January 2014
It works when I use the keyboard to "cut" (command-x), and I can paste if I manually select "paste" from the menu....but not from the keyboard.



Weird. Thoughts?

    be more spesific. What are you cuting & pasting, in what app. etc...



    first thought, have you checked the text color?

    In any app. Browser(s). TextEdit, etc.

    I have one solution, but it involved an altar, a few chickens, and a Barbara Striesand CD...

    Yes, I can. Obviously, the command key works as well.

    Have you restarted the computer?



    There's a chance pbs is borked. A restart might fix that.

    Frequently pasting icons won't work, that's a longstanding Jag problem. Maybe 10.2.7 will fix it? hah right
