Can't Copy and paste tracks anymore

When trying to copy/cut and paste tracks within even the same playlist the pasted information is treated simply as text in the clipboard (indeed you can paste it into a text editor).
Of course this is of no use to FB and you get a mangled unplayable (because theres no filename info I guess) entry with just the pasted text in the Title field and no more.

As I've not used cutting and pasting for some time I can't say when this started to occur.

Dragging and dropping still does work, but I find it more convenient to use CnP.

p.s. It also affect Collect too.

1.4.3 on Windows 10 Pro using Default UI.

Can't replicate. You sure you don't have some tool present that converts clipboard to text?

No I don't have any tools that I know of that affect the clipboard. 
But its fixed (for now anyway). :)
It seem to be some weirdness in windows and not FB2K as far I can tell.  I had tried restarting FB over a dozen times and it still occurred, rebooted windows, problem still there, second reboot and cut and paste in FB was suddenly working again!

Don't know what caused it, but I'll post again if it reoccurs, especially if I can find a way to reproduce it.

Thanks for replying anyhow.

I reported this issue almost 1 year a go, but no one could figure out why this is happening.

Here is a video clip that shows the problem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkMStf_nW6A

foobar2000 does copy text, but also copies file references. If something is modifying your clipboard contents to only the text, then I guess it could be breaking. It's probably not widely known that clipboard and drag and drop both support multiple object types at once, and the target program picks the type they prefer.
