Copy/paste buffer not working after some time.

One of our users reported that copy/paste buffer is not working after some time. Is there a way to check whether the clipboard is purging older copy/paste related items. Is there any open issue related to this? Are there any settings to increase clipboard size? [I know of Settings -> clipboard (max number entries to keep in buffer)].

We are using Linux, OpenJDK, IntelliJ 10.5.

Let me know if you need any other information.

It sometime doesn't work copy/paste/cut for text more than 75 chars. in same time it works for text less than 75 chars.

for example:

This text copy/paste/cut works.

 "final ActorRef actor = actorService.getActorSystem().actorOf((Props) event"

but this one can't copy

"final ActorRef actor = actorService.getActorSystem().actorOf((Props) eventLogic.cast(), name);

Hello,

* you can check current buffer content via 'Paste from History' action (mapped to the 'Ctrl+Shift+V' by default);
* number of clipboard buffer entries is managed by the setting you mentioned;
* are there any steps to reproduce the problem?
* can you try that under jre 1.6?

Please try IDEA 10.5.2 with "-Didea.use.alt.clipboard.sync=true" (details).

Same happens for me: 

IntelliJ IDEA 2018.1 (Ultimate Edition)
Build #IU-181.4203.550, built on March 26, 2018
JRE: 1.8.0_152-release-1136-b20 amd64
JVM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM by JetBrains s.r.o
Windows 10 10.0

 

On single files at some point it starts to not recognize copy and paste actions anymore. But only from a certain length on.

Running as admin - doesn't make any difference, clipboard still doesn't work.
