I am recently experiencing an issue that CTRL+C can fail to send selected text to the clip board frequently. It was super trouble for me but I thought it was only me because no one mentioned about it.

 

Today I found that a mini menu pops up right after selecting a text. It offers an option to hide the menu always. Once I hide it, the issue has been solved! It saves my life.

 

Therefore, the problem is, when the mini menu pops up after selecting a text, CTRL+C short cut is ignored, until the menu disappears.

Hey there @Katsutoshi_Hayashida, thanks for the post! Just wanted to let you know I've shared this post with the team that works on the mini menu, and thank you for posting what was causing this for you.

Same problem here! Very annoying bug for programmers.
