I run TB 45.8.0 with Lightning 4.7.8.

Now, for some reason, it is no longer possible for me to Cut & Paste, or Copy & Paste events.

When I try to do either, the appropriate dialog appears, but clicking on Paste does nothing, and the dialog remains on screen.

I would appreciate any help in resolving this problem,

Does the same thing occur if you launch the application in Mozilla Safe Mode?

Unfortunately, Lightning is disabled in Safe Mode.

I usually just drag and drop events when I want to move one to another date.

Apparently, the solution that eliminated the problem for me was in another, related, thread:

I clicked Tools | Options | Security | Saved Passwords | Remove All.

Then, I was soon asked to re-enter various passwords, and with that, all started working properly in the Calendar again.

All the best,
