Illustrator randomly fails on select-paste
23.0.1 64-bit on Win 10 Xeon with GPU accel. Selection, copy paste text fails randomly. Copy seems to work but all paste options grayed out. Yet I can paste to NotePad and other apps. This has been going on for over a year. Have to double click or paste to another doc first. Please fix!

Copy/Paste is erratic when using a Wacom tablet, and has been for all Illustrator versions that I recall (definitely from CS6 onwards), that's on Win 7 Pro. I don't think I've experienced the problem if using a mouse (which I plugged in only for testing purposes, I don't otherwise use a mouse). The symptoms seem the same; you can "copy" objects but not paste them back into illustrator documents, either the same document or another.
Do you have any clipboard manager installed?
