Thread: Copy and Paste

    Copy and Paste

    Lately when I've been doing some art/drawing stuff using MS Paint and I go to copy and paste, the pasted segment doesn't stay in memory. One factor, sometimes, is the size of the selection. If you select a large section of pixels there is no problem but when the selection is small it often won't stay "coped". The "Paste" button lights up for a split second and then fades back to gray. The strange thing is if I close a running app/processes using the task manager, the copy and paste starts working again for a few minutes, then it stops again. If I restart the computer it works again but only temporarily.

    Anyone have an idea what causes this?

    That is odd. Have you noticed how much RAM is in use through the task manager? I'm wondering if there's a memory leak.

    At the moment, I'm using 44% of my 16 gigs of ram, and my copy and paste is working.

    Okay, so that's a good start. Let's see what that's at if, or when, it happens again.

    Stopped again and I'm using 41% of my ram. Doesn't make sense that only large sections of copied matter stays in memory.

    It must be the MS Paint program because I'm not having any problems with Paint 3D. Weird...
