I have found the same issue with other apps too, but this is the one I remember. So, I am not sure if it's an OS level issue or an app issue.

I using an app named "4k Video Downloader" (it downloads youtube videos). When I edit the name of the file before saving it, I am unable to paste text with ⌘V but I have the option to paste in the context menu. I have also observed that the app does not have an edit menu on the menu bar. Am I unable to paste via the keyboard as the app does not have edit in the menu bar or is it some other issue?

This is an observation that I have made and as a new Mac user, I just trying the OS better. This is not a support request for "4k Video Downloader". I have observed this in other apps too, but I decided to dig into it after I observed in this app.

Below is the screen grab in case, I have not explained the issue concisely. enter image description here

  • I just downloaded it to test. I'd blame the app, not following the standard Mac toolbox guidelines. – Tetsujin Mar 6 '17 at 15:15
  • You're right, it's a bug with the app since it doesn't provide an Edit menu in the menu bar. A good question – grg Mar 6 '17 at 16:09
