Copy & Paste is tempermental
Users reporting multiple copy/paste issues for text:
Can't paste multi-messages. Often, only the first line pastes, the rest disappear. As one user puts it: "On the Windows 10 desktop client it is nearly impossible to copy multiple messages from the chat history. A fraction of a second after letting go of the mouse, the highlight collapses down to a single message."
Can't paste in general: "Copy & Paste is tempermental, when i try to paste text in from other sources it simply doesn't paste, but then if I only copy a few (3-6) words then it does. It means I can't do something as simple as pasting in a paragraph from an email, which I can definitely do in Skype for Business."
Can't copy/paste from Skype for Business.
When using an alternate theme like dark theme, copying messages out of Teams brings its background with it, meaning if you paste it somewhere else it has that dark gray background.
When copying something into teams, it preserves its original font color on top of the dark background, causing problems with visibility. If you are going to allow palette swapping themes, please add appropriate measures for text copied out of or into the app.
Feature request is still being worked upon.
Problem with highlighting and cut & paste seems to be getting worse.
Microsoft Teams have been working on this since April 2018 without a fix?
Copy and paste is ridiculously hard to use. Please fix!!!!! The cursor has to be exactly on the beginning or end. Lots of time that doesn't even work. Have to try 5-6 times to get it exactly right. come on !

hi on septmber 26 when i paste from the picture it pasted in the same format of the picture like there were 5 column and 5 column were able to paste. but now when i follow the same thing all the column is appended into one column. how is this possible and how can we fix can you please suggest
Additionally, when copying messages it doesn't include the senders' names. So if, for example, you wanted to keep a record of a teams conversation you don't actually have WHO said what.
Glad you're working on it. While that's going on, this works beautifully in Slack. Maybe look at how that works and see if you can't emulate it.

I was able to copy and paste a quote on my Desktop to be able to transfer over to my Facebook page. I never had a problem doing this until a few days ago. Suddenly, the images that I posted on my Desktop, only show a blank background with what looks like a mountain or some type of image. I USE to see the actual picture or quote that I cut/pasted. I am on Windows 10 and probably, yet again, they made another change or two so now, I have to click on the image first to see what it is before I put it on Facebook.
Well I copied info from Greek TV listings site ERT on both Widows 7 and Windows 10 devices and then pasted it into Greek to English translate in Google. Windows 7 no issues works EVERY time, Windows 10 however, complete bag of **** constantly pastes the thing you copies several hours earlier...
cannot cut & paste from tasks in Palnner. making the task list is less useful.
I am currently waiting for the "repair" to Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus to run hoping it will fix my copy paste problems in Work for the second time in less than a month. This is getting old! What is wrong with the "Old School" Word - it never had problems. Let's revolt and revert :)

Not the time or the place to go bashing Gates. Go do it somewhere else and let the grownups try and troubleshoot this issue.
Do you how lame Gates and all his successors stand revealed when, for those of us old enough to remember trying to use C v.5.1, Microsoft still has yet to release a reliable mouse driver? If ever there was a need for society to step in and regulate emergent products and industries, Gates' life is the most eloquent argument for that. Not just because most of what he did is now illegal, but for the utter lack of inspiration, creativity, appreciation of superior design( *NIX,) when he didn't own it, basic will and heart needed to do good work, even over a period of decades.
He's dull dropout who fell into a bin of money and the other domesticated primates worship his shadow. He is an illustration of most of what is wrong with out species other than our propensity for warfare. "Feels like Fredrich Neitzsche while sounding like Donald Duck. Money doesn't make you cool, and it demonstrably doesn't make you one whit smarter. Gates "changed history" by selling training wheels to those too lazy to read the instructions. Wow.
When I copy from excel TO ANOTHER PROGRAM such as outlook, word, etc. I can paste a picture or or paste keep text only. I am not copying as a picture. It is no longer letting me keep source formatting or use destination formatting or do the same with links. When I click any paste alternative other than paste as picture or keep text only nothing shows up. This problem will destroy my productivity. I have been reading forums and suggestions. Thus far none of them have resolved the fact that I can no longer paste and use destination styles.
The only other new copy related problem, I noticed recently WITHIN excel is that it became temperamental when I cut and insert cut cells. I am also a heavy user of this. I can conclusively say that the problem is not because I am in the wrong column or cell when I click to insert copied cells. So that recommendation will not apply to my situation. The difference between the paste scenario above and this on is that I can eventually paste the cut cells ok.
Why is it so hard to copy and paste in power point? "Set as picture or use destination theme? 500 times!! Just paste! Why does it just start doing this now and then?
The fact that Excel keeps copied information indefinitely is absurd. I copy some data, paste it where it needs to be. Then do some more work. Then insert a column or row and all of a sudden what I had copied ages ago is inserted. To have to hit ESC to cancel the copy is ridiculous.
Hi i am unable to copy paste in general either to quote or to copy from another source. Its really frustration as i use skype for internal comm in my office and i am unable to copy paste information. please help.
A workaround for copying from out of and pasting into Teams exists. Paste into Word or Excel, re-copy from there, then paste into Teams.
Is this a problem just with the s9 . it want let me copyandpaste

I have a question ... after WIndows 10's recent update here last week or so (1st half of July 2018), why is Excel all of a sudden taking me back up to the copied cell after I hit Enter on a block of cells when I cut and paste? I work a huge spreadsheet that I have to manipulate from top to bottom and before, after hitting Enter to paste, it would just leave me at the bottom of my selected block so I could just continue on to the doing the next section. So now after hitting Enter, it runs me ALL THE WAY BACK UP to the copied cell and now I have to SCROLL AGAIN back down to the next section I need to manipulate. It is VERY ANNOYING and time consuming. I wish they'd put it back to defaulting at the bottom cell of my selected range. UGH!
I am having unreal problems with Telus.....STILL
http://urbantoronto.ca/ If I cut and paste this URL into the search window....it works fine.. BUT if I click on this link in one of mymy Telus emails....it does not work. Also my Telus service sucks almost as bad as all the others. I have found that it even though Telus is willing to cut my service off for non payment....they DO NOT stand up for their products.
Even though I have now PAID in full IN ADVANCE.....and my service STILL does not work properly.
AS an example....while watching a show on any channel....the show suddenly stops and a message occurs that says the channel is no longer available...."""BUT""" if I go to another channel and then...back... to the one that was not available a few seconds before....it now appears AGAIN. YOUR SERVICE sucks as it does not work on a consistent basis.....
How do I get this fixed.....do I have to get your service department out to get this fixed..
THE one really unfair thing is that we are being FORCED to use and pay for a system that does not give what it claims.....and yet due to our governing bodies we cannot do anything about it....without causing ourselves and our businesses a lot of undue extra work and problems...
