Standa, any clue from your past insight into clipboard issues?
Comment 4 z_netbeans 2015-12-12 23:34:21 UTC
I see same issue. Is this going to get fixed? If not, I can not use Netbeans. I am a new user. I see this issue has been around for many years now.
Comment 5 Geertjan Wielenga 2015-12-13 05:38:29 UTC
Ctrl-Shift-D shows the clipboard history.

(In reply to Geertjan Wielenga from comment #5)
> Ctrl-Shift-D shows the clipboard history.

That still only shows what I have copied from within NetBeans not say from another application like notepad.

Take a look at the above, I copied your e-mail content from my mail client, then went to NetBeans, pressed Ctrl-Shift-D, and there it is.
