I try to copy text from one issue description and paste it to another issue description (simple ctrl+c/ctrl+v), but it doesn't work. I also tried to paste it to any text editor, but no results.
Having the same issue here on Linux using Chrome since a couple of weeks. And it's only a problem for the new interface though. With the old interface I can still copy/paste without any trouble. Interestingly it's been working with the new interface already but broke only a couple of weeks ago.
Edit: and it's not limited to any specific (editable) field. I cannot copy any text at all.
I can report this issue as well (Ubunut 20.04, Google Chrome 96)... just to add some extra pressure.
It seems like a custom event handler does something nasty:
Neither theCTLR+C nor the Context menu/Copy work.
No JS issue/error reported on the browser's console.
Reloading the given page helps a bit, but obviously it's annoying.
Same is happening with me using Chrome 97.0.4692.71 and Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon (5.2.7).
Looks like an issue regarding Linux OS because i was using on Windows without issues a few weeks ago.
This is really impacting my usability because i forget the copy does not work and have already lost a lot of texts.
Could be something specific about the chrome build for linux, but I don't think it's a linux issue, otherwise copy/paste would be broken everywhere. I suspect Jira is using some kind of libraries that the chrome/linux build isn't handling correctly, or Jira isn't handling correctly, that's resulting in this behavior.
Firefox seems to behave fine with Jira if you want to give it a shot.
I don't know if this helps anyone, but I had a similar problem. My problem was that I could not paste into the description field of an issue in Jira. However, I found that if I pasted the text into a text editor (Notepad), and then copied from Notepad, I could paste into the description field. Not sure why that works, but maybe it's because the description field doesn't support rich text, or some formatted version of text for PASTE, although it obviously allows me to create rich text in the description field text editor box. It's an odd problem to be sure.
