The Issue

Can use ctrl-v, but right click doesn't work in Publish > Description. Might be worth looking into other parts of the app also.

The description area needs to be an Input HTMLElement. When I change the span to an input it works. However, it then requires restyling.

<span class="cm-null cm-spell-error">This is the description text area, which is not an Input HTMLElement</span>

The code only lets the context menu work on inputs.

  // If context menu is opened on Input and text is present on clipboard
  if (clipboard.readText().length > 0 && isInput) {
      label: 'Paste',
      accelerator: 'CmdOrCtrl+V',
      role: 'paste',

See contextMenu.js

Also affects the "Report a Bug or Suggest a New Feature" area.

This requires a more complex fix 🙃 ^^

Also I don't think that's the correct style for textarea of dark-theme
@tzarebczan Should we open a new issue for that? ^
