I have this strange issue. Using PhpStorm on Ubuntu 10.04 which is running on a VMWare image through VMWare Player (not latest, but very new version) with VMWare Tools installed. When PhpStorm is open I can not copy/paste from windows to vmware image. I also can not even copy/paste from within two files inside of PhpStorm. However, if I type something in gedit I can copy from there and paste into PhpStorm. If I copy something from windows I can paste into gedit and then paste into PhpStorm. But if I don't paste it into gedit first, phpstorm will only paste the previous item that was pasted into gedit. Seems to be some kind of problem with blocking/recognizing the clipboard. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
