I have found that copy/paste doesn't work on Windows between other editors and Netbeans in Windows. If I enter text into, for instance, EditPlus or Wordpad, I cannot copy it from there and successfully paste into Netbeans. Instead, what gets pasted in Netbeans is the last thing I copied FROM Netbeans. I know I've successfully pasted into Netbeans in the past, so either this is a regression, or somehow Netbeans can get into a stuck state where it stops talking to the clipboard properly.
This, of course, makes it really hard to copy code from a web page into Netbeans.
This happens to me also. I copied text from the web browser but can't paste the text into NetBeans.
