I have installed nmap-7.80.dmg and cannot copy output to clipboard. I am sure this worked in previous versions of OSX and nmap.

Don’t stress out, most issues with nonfunctional clipboards and copy and paste on the Mac can be resolved with a series of fairly simple troubleshooting steps.
One way to force the Clipboard to relaunch itself in Mac OS via Activity Monitor:

1.) Quit out of the Mac app(s) where copy/paste are not working as expected.

2.) Open “Activity Monitor” application, it is found within the /Applications/Utilities/ folder or you can hit Command+Spacebar and type Activity Monitor to launch it via Spotlight.

3.) In the Search box of Activity Monitor, type “pboard”.

4.) Click on the ‘pboard’ process and then click the (X) in the Activity Monitor tool bar, then click on “Force Quit” button.
5.) Exit Activity Monitor.

Try copying and pasting again.
I hope this works out for you.

I have followed your instructions but still have the problem. The paste board seems to work for every other app including apps that rely on XQuarts.
