Additional information

Top one is manually tabbed. Bottom ones are copy/pasted.

The bug report template, which you read, clearly states

We only consider bugs that are reproducible in the sandbox vault or no third-party plugins/no css snippets/default theme.

I reproduced it in the sandbox.

I guess I assumed the sandbox thing was for me to verify and then still submit the bug report as I regularly use the app. Is that wrong? Am I suppose to send the environment report and screenshot from the Sandbox?

Thanks. As your debug info and screenshot wasn’t from the sandbox vault, it was unclear if you tried it in your original post.

I think you’ll probably be asked next where you are copying from and the contents of your clipboard.

I am still a bit confused on what is exactly that you doing. So a screen recording showing your settings and where you are coping from and to would help.
