  1. Open a new excel worksheet
  2. Write something in a1 and press enter.
  3. Press upArrow to go back to cell a1.
  4. Press CTRL+x to cut the Cell.
  5. Go to another cell and press CTRL+v to paste and press downArrow for example.
    then you'll here an error sound and you'l find an error in the log file (see below).
    Expected: NVDA should read the new selected cell and work as before.

part of NVDA.log:
IO - inputCore.InputManager.executeGesture (15:20:26):
Input: kb(laptop):control+v

I see this also, it seems copy works but not move. You can try the paste via F2, but although this indeed pastes it, it will not remove the old one.
The error seems to occur when you try to move away from the paste.

It affects Xcel XP 2002 as well.

Did this happen in 2011.1.1? if so, it needs a What's New entry.

Replying to jteh:

Did this happen in 2011.1.1? if so, it needs a What's New entry.
