Hey @sooyoung
Are you clicking on this “button” thing here beside block to select it?

In this case the cursor automatically jumps into this field:

As there is nothing in it, pressing Ctrl+C is just copying nothing.

Normal copy and paste works for me. Have a look:

You may be right as I’m noticing now that selecting the block with the side selector does put the cursor into the empty field, but the reason I’ve noticed this issue that previously, I could do it without a problem. So I’m not sure if this is a recent change since the update

I agree with @sooyoung that selecting the ribbon on the side of a block and then using Ctrl+C to copy the whole block is making sense from a UI perspective. Should we get this to the devs?
