[macOS] Can't copy text while in Edit mode

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open the app and navigate to any Note (or create a new note) with text
  2. While in edit mode, highlight text and copy with Cmd + C
  3. Attempt to paste anywhere (Obsidian or any other app)

Expected result

I expected to be able to copy the markdown I wrote and be able to paste it anywhere.

Actual result

I am not able to paste content copied from the editor.


  • Operating system: macOS 11.5.2
  • Obsidian version: 1.0.4 (21)

Additional information

  • My setup is pretty vanilla. I paid for Obsidian Sync and have a couple core plugins enabled, but no community plugins at the moment.
  • I have two macbooks each on 11.5.x M1 chip machines and the problem is on both.
  • I use Pastebot and when I try to copy from the Obisdian Editor I get “Clipping from Obsidian” but I can’t see anything about it.
  • I’ve tried quitting Pastebot in case it was interferring, but the problem persists.

If you use the desktop version it should work.
