Universal clipboard won’t work from Safari on ios to Obsidian Mac

I can copy text from Obsidian on ios/ipados, then use universal clipboard to paste that text on Obsidian Mac.

When I try to copy from Safari on either device and paste in Obsidian on the Mac it hangs and won’t paste.

What’s weird is that I can copy the same text from Safari on ios/ipad ios, and using Universal Clipboard, paste it into text edit on the Mac so the text is being sent to the Mac.

does it work if you paste without formatting?

A little more detail: When I copy text from a webpage in Safari on iPhone and paste into Obsidian on Mac, I briefly see a beachball spinner, then a message that says it’s pasting from my phone, but it doesn’t actually paste. If I copy the url from the address bar, or even from a link in the webpage, it works.

When I paste without formatting I don’t see the above, just a brief highlight of the Edit menu, and it doesn’t paste.

I have made sure that airdrop itself does work, because I can paste texts from iPhone clipboard onto other MAC apps such as my edge browser or apple note. And I just cannot paste anything directly onto an Obsidian page.
