Copy/paste doesn't work in Quicken 2014

I just upgraded from Quicken 2013 to 2014.  For some reason, copy/paste isn't working in the register.  In 2013, I copy my category name from one transaction and paste it in another recently downloaded transaction.  This doesn't work in 2014.  It almost looks like this functionality is no longer supported.  I find it hard to believe Quicken would take away this feature.  I typically use CTRL-C/CTRL-V and my preferences are set to use the Windows shortcuts.  Even if I right click, the only choice is to copy/paste the entire transaction, not my selected text.  I haven't found a workaround yet.  Any suggestions?  Any idea when this will be fixed?  I'm so frustrated over something so basic that I almost want to get my money back.

I found a solution and hope it's permanent.  I went into preferences/setup and changed my keyboard mapping settings.  Mine were set to Windows Standard but wasn't working.  I changed them to Quicken Standard and then back to Windows Standard.  I tried various ways including changing to Quicken Standard, Save, Exit, restarting Quicken, and changing back to Windows Standard.  I'm not sure the exact scenario required, but it is working for me now after toggling the settings.  I've read other posts that say their shortcuts work for a while but breaks again.  Time will tell if my problem will come back.  Just glad to have even a temporary solution.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
