Perhaps you added a custom menu to the window? Or the user privilege set is otherwise limited?
Cut copy paste work just fine in my brief test.
You user is closing the modal window before trying to paste, right? I know it sounds silly, but from the FileMaker Help:
"Because dialog windows are modal, users must close dialog windows before they can open or interact with any open document windows or switch from Browse to Layout mode. However, solution developers can use a script to open another dialog window or a modal utility window (for example, the Manage Database dialog box) while a dialog window is open. For more information, see the table describing script step restrictions below."
In a quick test, paste can't work between windows because I can't bring a second window to the foreground which the modal one is open, but I did get drag & drop between windows to work....

Thanks Bruce. That was it.
Thanks Drew. I had a custom menu that didn't have the Edit menu items.
