Can't paste copied links all of a sudden.

Using Chrome, I used to be able to copy links to quote in posts yet, all of a sudden, even though it says it's copied the link, it doesn't appear when I try to paste it.

Anyone got any ideas why this could be so?

Thank you.

Cache had already been cleared as part of routine maintenance, i'll try restarting the phone- thanks.

Edit: Restart made no difference. By cleaning cache do you mean what ccleaner does, or something else?

Just copy/pasted the above link on a OnePlus7 Pro Android phone, using Chrome browser.

Try pressing a bit longer than usual when pasting.

Mine copied and pasted fine.

Re: Can't paste copied links all of a sudden.

Thanks for your suggestion Alan, I was going to try that, but received an Android update notification, which i've now installed.

When I went to use Chrome, that wanted to update too.

The problem now seems to be resolved
