Hi @md850

Known issue that copy and paste is temperamental in the Teams client. There is a uservoice on it. Microsoft have been working on it for some time

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/20369608-copy-paste-is-temperm...

Would recommend you vote to push it up the agenda. Voting will also track the status of the uservoice so once done, you will be notified.

Others on here may suggest workarounds, however this needs to natively work with workaround across web, desktop and mobile clients. A lot are getting frustrated with this as shown on the uservoice so community needs to crank up the noise on it

Hope that answers your question

Best, Chris
