Long delay when cutting/copying text

Hi all,

I’ve noticed that when using Scrivener for Windows, on Windows 10, long delays (1-2 minutes) are experienced when cutting or copying text. The program otherwise works fine, as does pasting large amounts of text.

The same issue occurs on my desktop and my laptop. Has anyone else experienced this?

I’ve seen this, but the delay is only a matter of seconds:


Try “endtasking” scriv.

I tried this, but it didn’t fix it. The delay is approximately 50 seconds to copy three paragraphs of text.

The same problem doesn’t appear on my Mac.

Noticed something else today: it doesn’t actually matter if you copy/paste inside Scrivener or outside it, if you open up Notepad and copy stuff it still causes Scrivener to hang.

Maybe it’s an issue with the Windows 10 clipboard?
