This is a little bit glitchy. I hadn’t noticed as I normally use paste-in-place. If it’s somehow related to template, here’s mine:

Copying loose geometry works, but sometimes it’s not visible, zoom extents displays it and I think no more about it. I tried a group and it beeps at me as if there’s nothing in the clipboard. The Finder confirms there’s something in it, but obviously it can’t display it. I changed default template to one of the standard ones that came with 2020 and it worked fine. I went back to my old template and it worked a few times then failed again. Now sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.
Even when it is working, if the mouse is totally still the pasted object doesn’t get drawn until the mouse is moved, but that might be normal. It is the four-arrow mouse cursor, the same as the move tool.
I use a clipboard stack program for multiple clipboard items (CmdVees) which can cause problems, but I’m seeing the same thing as other people here.
Could this be something to do with view hidden being split into hidden geometry and hidden objects?
