PHPStorm has its own clipboard?

I copied text from a place (doesn't matter which place), then pasted into PHPStorm's file text search box but it just pastes the previous thing I had. If I paste to any other program, it pastes what's currently in the clipboard. Nothing I do will paste what's in Windows' clipboard.

Does PHPStorm have it's own clipboard that sometimes just won't update to Windows' clipboard?

I don't need two clipboards; Windows' clipboard is perfectly adequate.


What PhpStorm version do you run? This was an issue a long time ago.


PHPStorm 10. The current version had more downsides than upsides in our tests.


It's a bug that has been fixed, but it hasn't and won't be backported to earlier versions, unfortunately:
