You must have mouse and keyboard focus in the target application before paste will work. Otherwise, nothing will happen as you describe. One or both of the applications may not be using Apple's clipboard, and you cannot get the content from the proprietary clipboard, or clipboard manager.

Try launching Activity Monitor and in the search field type "pboard", then choose it and in the upper left corner click on the X to force quit. Then try again.

If that doesn't work, it may be corruption in the launch services data base. Try rebuilding it:



Launch Terminal Triple click anywhere on the following line to copy entire line then at the prompt copy & paste this command: Then press return. Wait for the cursor to return to the command line.


/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain u -domain s -domain l -v
