A standard part of our plan setup process is to copy our template title blocks into our plan sheets and scale. Our title blocks frequently have image files in them, whether an 811 call before you dig image file or a required client logo. In SelectSeries 4 we have always been able to go through this process and when pasted MicroStation would add the image file into the Raster Manager.
There are also many instances wen we use a reference file, scaled down, as a key map. To speed things up we copy the key map to the clipboard and paste to other plan sheets. Like the raster, Microstation automatically adds the key map to the reference manager.
Both of these processes now cause Microstation to crash, on some computers it's an instant close as soon as you hit paste, on others it hangs up for a long time then crashes.
One thing I have noticed, when referencing in a plan sheet with nested references I can use the copy element command to copy the key map reference from the reference to the active design and Microstation ads it to the reference manager. So the process is still possible with a workaround but the copy/paste is problematic.
We also tried creating the title blocks as cells, but Microstation doesn't allow images in the cells, so that's no good either
We are using Microstation CONNECT Update 14 V. 10.1402.01
There have been other discussions about issues with Copy/Paste. I don't know if those would be of any use to you if you were to search for them.
I always prefer to reference items in and then copy them through because that relies on native MicroStation, and isn't subject to any Windows issues.
Something else to consider - are you certain that your MicroStation temporary directory exists? You can check that by looking at the MS_TMP configuration variable.

I checked, and it does exist.

I've never really had any issues with copy/paste, until now. While the referencing workaround is a possibility and I guess we'll have to it now, I was hoping to find out of this was a fixable glitch on our end or if Bentley has it on their "to do" list for future updates.
There is an existing outstanding Defect 1110543 that may apply here, rather than using the clip board copy/paste method, dos the reference method mentioned by MaryB workaround the issue ?
