Having problems with the paste function in Writer (6.4)

There is no pop up screen in paste function and edit for paste is grey. i have tried all the recommendations and recopied. Still same problem

What are you trying to paste? What’s in the clipboard? Not all clipboard contents can be pasted in Writer.

everything i paste does the same thing

I have now uninstalled 6.4 and loaded 6.3 and now its fine
