Copy/Paste not working
I can't copy or paste on the OSX Dreamweaver CC 2018.
I tried deleting the temp cahce file, restarting DW, and closing the file within DW and opening it again.
The problem is I can't copy FROM DW, and paste into anything else. Pasting within DW works.
We are sorry that you are facing issues with DW app.
We are not able to see this issue at our end.
For us to better investigate this issue, can you please provide us with answers to the following questions?
1) What is the document view(full Code view or Live view or split code and live view) that you are copying from and pasting into?
2) When does the issue start happening? Is it after you switch to another app and come back to DW or you minimise and maximize DW?
3) Are the pages you are trying to copy from part of Local site root folder or remote site

This link below posted by Geoff S seems to have fixed the issue for me.
Surprised Admin hasn't picked that up?
Copy and paste does not work. It really should not make a difference from which app you copy from? What happens is that when you paste it copies contents totally different from the source and it corrupts your code.
At times in a worst case scenario even the undo fails to redo the previous code.
copy and paste functions are not working. new copy, creative cloud dreamweaver fully udated. Newest versions. Still not fixed!!! Fix this nightmare please.
Same as user "definition", DW 2.01 and I cant copy and paste code...
Please solve this ASAP!
I have also downloaded Dreamweaver v20.1 and copy and paste DOES NOT WORK properly.
⌘C and ⌘V DOES NOT hold any tags on a Mac, whether that be to and from code, split or live view. Copy and paste format is non existent when coping to a template. To add insult to injury - I cannot even download cc 2015 because Adobe only allow you go as far back as 19.2.1.

I just downloaded and installed Dreamweaver v20.1 TODAY. It's on my company's CC licence. I have never installed Dreamweaver on this Mac before.
⌘C and ⌘V do NOT work. I am forced to use the contextual menu.
To be frank it's quite unbelievable that something as basic as copy and paste don't work.
We have fixed the copy-paste issue in the latest Dw 20.0 update.
Request you to please try out the latest Dw update and provide your valuable feedback on the same.

Same issue. Adobe is a worthless junk entity who coerced investors into believing they were something they were not. We, as professionals know better as we use these products everyday.
We should have tried to save Macromedia from this junkware builder.
Same problem here just started???what's up

I'm having the same problem with a fresh install of Windows and CC apps.
I just found this link which solved it for me:
I am having this same issue with Windows 10 and the current version of Dreamweaver CC. I cannot copy and paste in the design view.
It happens in code view, split code.
It start as soon as you open the up all circumstances
Doesn't matter if it is local, remote, local to remote, the keyboard shortcuts DO NOT work under an conditions

I am using Dreamweaver 2018.2 and both Cut and Copy are disabled in Code view so I can't copy any code from Dreamweaver. The Paste command is showing as enabled when I copy something from other applications but nothing gets copied in the Dreamweaver document when I click on Paste,
However; if I paste the content in other applications like Notepad or Word, the content is inserted as expected so it's obviously Dreamweaver bug.
Adobe taking Dreamweaver from Macromedia was the worst thing that happened to Dreamweaver.
Come on Adobe, you are charging us a lot of money for Dreamweaver so start supporting the product and fix the bugs in YOUR product.
I had massive problems before (i posted a solution in this thread before), but since i updated from High Sierra to Mojave the problem didn't occur a single time any more. Hope this info helps the others. Otherwise download the little shell script from my dropbox, it's further down in the comments.
I restarted the Dreamweaver and the issue got resolved.
I am experiencing similar issue in documents created with Dreamweaver only when creating and editing in Dreamweaver.
Copy Paste works as expected in already existing documents created not with Dreamweaver but opened and edited in Dreamweaver.
Copy does not work in documents created with Dreamweaver. The highlighted snippet shows up underscored and Copy command is disabled in the right click menu. Ctrl + C takes no action either.
If copied from existing non Dreamweaver created document to Dreamweaver created document then Paste does not work as expected while the document is open. The pasted information becomes visible after saving and restarting that document.
I have this issue as well didn't realise it was happening (cut and paste all wrong as DW didn't display/update text pasted) so accidentally saved it before quitting and reopened to messed up code. Thank goodness for Time Machine.
Switching between CODE View: Source Code, Css Code using the mini in doc tabs.
Open and collapse div code sections within source code.
Mac OS Mojave 10.14.2
I have been having this ongoing issue for quite some time now. Please Adobe, fix this problem.
There is a clear fact that this issue is bad compatibility between various browsers and DW,
so it is only a matter of dealing with that issue as soon as possible.
I can’t understand why Adobe is struggling so hard...
