Thanks for the console tip - I'm new to Sublime Text and didn't know about that. I activated the logging as you suggested and each time I try and Paste from outside the program it says:
Unable to extract text from the clipboard, available formats: CF_UNICODETEXT, HTML Format, CF_LOCALE, CF_TEXT, CF_OEMTEXT
Any suggestions? I'm not sure where to configure Sublime Text to allow for any other text - I'm not trying to paste anything exotic, and am happy to have it just paste the text without any formatting, etc.
