Additional information

Test this in the Sandbox vault please.

Check your hotkeys, that you didn’t map Cmd-X to something else.

I can’t reproduce this. (For now I’ll move this to Help, until more info is given. Thanks.)

I’m a little afraid to ask this but you’re in an editing mode, not reading mode? You’re able to type stuff, when you try to cut the text?

(I’m almost ashamed to admit, but I’ve tried similar operations whilst in reading view… )
