I am on 6.5 and the green tick. The error happens copying between any files. I cannot see a pattern. It just does not work.

OK - so we've confirmed it's not a registration/demo state problem. We also know from my test earlier that the issue doesn't affect all users, otherwise I too would see the effect. So we need a smaller test. For now, I'd suggest testing in outline view as the results are more obvious (e.g. it's easier to see and verify child/descendant notes from the same view context).

Make a new empty TBX file, select outline view. Don't add any prototypes. Create a new note, and add a child note to it. Create second new empty TBX document and select outline view. With the container in the first file expanded, select both the parent and child (total: 2 notes) and paste to the outline of the second file. What turns up after the paste? We'd expect 2 notes, one nested inside another. However, from your experience so far would suggest you may get only the parent container.

Through outline the copy process works. It creates a container called "imported outline", where the parent and the child is included. But that does not work in a map view and that way I cannot copy links too, right?

Something's not right.  When I do this test and I copy/paste between documents (Cmd+C in source doc, then Cmd+V in the new doc), I just get the container and child. I don't get an 'imported outline' container. The only difference I see is that regardless of whether the parent container is expanded in the source doc the pasted=in container is always collapsed.

Until the basic import works (and yours still doesn't for some reason) issues about view type is moot. I simple suggested using outline as it's easier to check nesting.

If we're truly doing the same test and you're getting the wrong outcome some other factor is at play. FWIW, I'm using various Macs 2001 MBPro, 2013 MBAir, 2015 MacMini) but all with v6.5.0 on OS 10.11.4 with UK OS locale.

When pasting, links among the notes that were copies will be pasted.  Links to other notes won’t be pasted.

Thanks for the information. For me it is totally fine to copy it through outlines.

Small update. It does not really work in outlines either. Same problem as described above.  Undecided

As this isn't a generic problem, I'd contact support. Having seen your movie, I don't doubt the issue on your Mac is as you describe it. But, it's not common to all users so will need more precise sleuthing to resolve and that's hard for fellow users here to do, unless we can replicate the cause.

I solved it. It was my copy paste manager, which normally does not interfere. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for the help.
