    Hi there.

    What browser are you using? What happens when you try to paste? Does it paste incorrectly formatted or not at all?

    similar - could not paste in chrome - pulled a bulleted list from an email and it would not paste, believe I was in beta.

    Quite a few little odd things happening in beta in the last 24hrs - slower, and backspacing was acting odd (ie i could not back space from one bullet up to the next.

    Thanks for helping us try to track this down.

    For pasting not working- I'm not able to reproduce this on a Mac/Chrome in beta. Does it not work every time? Are you on a PC? 

    For backspacing- can you tell me more specifically? There are cases in WF where backspace doesnt work as expected For example:

    • One
      • Two
    • Three
    • Four
    • Five

    You can backspace on Four and Five, but not on Three, Two, or One. That's been a longstanding way WorkFlowy works.

    Let me know if you're seeing something else.

    We also can't reproduce the paste issue on a PC.

    Can you send us a video or more information on how to reproduce the paste issue? Thanks.

    Can you tell me more about what fails? Does nothing appear at all? Does this happen for you every time?

    This should now be fixed.

    Thanks for your patience.
