    my macbook wont copy and paste anymore using the keyboard shortcuts or the menu options. when i go to copy something that is fine BUT when i paste it no matter how many characters i have pasted i get a one star character *

    for example if i copied this text

    this is what i get below when i paste it

    i don't think that i changed anything in my settings

    my macbook is only a little over a month old 2.4ghz 4 gigs ram OS 10.5.4

    thank you in advance

    I don't have an answer to your problem, but was wondering if you ever got it fixed. My Macbook running 10.5.8 (less than a year old) has stopped doing the copy/paste function also. It started about 3 weeks ago.
