Copy/Paste error when copying code from one cell to another

I'm experiencing a very strange and extremely annoying bug when copy/pasting code from one notebook Cell to another. If the amount of lines that I need to copy/paste is over 10 lines, the pasted code is truncated with an "..." in the middle. I will show an example of this in some attached files. I made sure to check that my copy/paste works fine outside of Databricks and it does. I've asked other users in my organization, and no one else has this issue. As far as I know, i did not change the shortcuts for copy/paste. Am I in some weird test group? This is really hurting my productivity.

I'm experiencing the same issue.  When I copy a long string of text from a cell in a databricks notebook, an ellipsis (...) replaces part of the text when pasted (this issue happens when pasting anywhere, not just into a notebook cell). I can paste long text without issue as long as it was not copied from a cell in a databricks notebook. I just started having this issue today and it's frustrating

I am also having this issue, starting on 11/8/23. Haven't detected a pattern like copying from a %magic cell or not, but continuing to monitor.
