I read through the bug reports to find previous Copy / Cut and Paste issues with IOS with the reports closed in August 2021. I am using Windows 10 and Copy / Cut and Paste using the mouse R-click is not working in Obsidian 0.15.8.
Steps to reproduce
- Select text
- Mouse R-click Copy or Cut text
- Move to new location on page in editor
- Mouse R-click Paste
The copied or cut text should be pasted in the new location.
Nothing gets pasted with mouse R-click Paste.
However, if I use Ctrl-V, the copied text does paste.

How does the mouse know to paste after a right click to copy/cut ? Ctl -c and ctl-V are keyboard shortcuts to copy and paste. does a drop down menu show when you r click the mouse? (Trying to figure out what changed) you didn’t say if it worked before the latest release.
I have the same issue on Windows. Ctrl +V to paste works, but right-click menu paste returns nothing.
Ctrl +V tested before and after both succesfully paste my clipboard content
Post a screen recording of this happening in the sandbox vault.
No need for screen recording I managed to reproduce.
When I highlight text to copy and then R-click the mouse, a drop down menu appears that offers me the choices to Cut, Copy, Paste, etc.
I choose Copy and then move to where I want to Paste, R-click the mouse again, get the same menu, choose Paste but nothing gets pasted.
I know that it has been copied because as I mentioned if I then use keyboard Ctrl-V, the text is pasted.
Previously using the R-click mouse did work.
I also tested in the the Sandbox Vault and the bug occurs there as well.
Sounds like WhiteNoise reproduced the bug.
For future reference, how do I do a screen record? Upon a quick Google search, they claim there’s a record option in developer console, but I couldn’t find that option in Obsidian’s developer console. Or do I use a 3rd party app?
use a screen recorder like screen2gif or sharex
