Copy/paste os visuals in Power BI Desktop does not work (November 2022 release)

Since I have updated to the latest version (November 2022) I can no langer copy/paste visuals between pages or reports.

Hi @kristofferwest 

I can only test with the October version on my side at the moment, and copy visual is working fine. My suggestion is that you switch back to the October version and update when the November version fixes the problem.

I've found copy-paste is broken to pages with no visuals on them. Version: 2.110.1085.0 64-bit (October 2022)

If I add anything to the page (just a shape will do) then I can paste.

I got ahead of my self. It is the October release, and as kleigh has said it is only an issue if you are copying from a page to another page, that has no content already. 
it I add an element to the other page manually copy paste works...

Would be appreciated. Copy / Paste is very useful and importend to create quickly reports. I still have this bug in Power BI Desktop in October Version.

Hello, try this way.
The great trick is cut some element from where you want to copy go in another power bi, click twice to open any component ( in this case PR) after you can paste the cuted component and it will unblock the feature for copy and paste.

Let me know if this way works.

Have a nice day.

Hi @Microsoft

 

it should not be necessary to have a trick to copy/paste. 
could someone from the support team please acknowledge this error?

I can confirm that the copy/paste does not work in the november version on an empty page. It's not normal and we shouldn't have to find tricks or rollback to an old version for such a basic function.
