Why does copy/paste not work properly?

Why am I not able to "paste" something I copied on another screen or tab? It always pastes the chosen component at the page I copied it from. What am I doing wrong?

Could you tell me what version and operative system are you using and how do you copy and paste (by keyboard, by menu, etc) please?


Thanks in advance

I'm working with a prototyper 4.0.1 professional on a Mac.


I did try copy and paste mostly with the keyboard and for control with the menu. The result was the same.


Am I doing something wrong?

How do you proceed when pasting? Do you first select the element (page or tab, etc) where you want to paste the item into? Remember you first need to select the element for the application to know where you want to place the item. If you are pasting in a different page open first the target page, select its background and then paste the item.


I hope this works for you.

Partially yes, but it is a bit confusing, since of course I do choose the tab first.


And it seems to be marked (the colour of the tab changes from white to grey).


I thought that would "do the trick", but apparently this is not enough.


And sometimes it does not even paste it in the chosen element, if I do klick its background.


But at least it is working most of the times now.


The fault seems to have been on my side. ;-)
