Galaxy Tab A - Clipboard won't Paste

First Poster

My Galaxy Tab A is a 2017 running Android 7.

 

Suddenly after I Copied to clipboard, I was unable to choose Paste from clipboard from the pop-up menu.

 

I don't know what causes this, but one fix is:

= Use Samsung Keyboard app (See Settings >Language input).

= When Paste does not show as a menu choice after doing Copy...

>Settings, Apps, Samsung Keyboard then click Storage, Clear Cache.

 

The above may also work when your language input is SwiftKey keyboard instead.

The problem is the Samsung keyboard.

 

The solution is to install Gboard, or another keyboard and turn SS keyboard off.
