Why can't I copy from a text file and paste to multiline text?

version 2014 on Windows 8.1.  I created a closure report in progeEARTH.  I highlighted some text and copied either using Ctrl+c or right-click.  I can't paste into a multi-line text box.

Dear progeCAD Customer,

we'd like to be able to directly check your report.

Did you install the latest available progeCAD version, the 2014 Professional?

Please forward all the elements that are necessary to reproduce it, to the support@progeCAD.com email address.

We look forward to receiving the required information/data. Thank you.

Best regards

I drew a traverse, then created a closure report.  That makes a .txt file.  I wanted to copy the closure and area from that .txt file and paste it in a single or multiline text entity, but it does nothing - it won't paste.  Shouldn't I be able to paste any text from the clipboard?  I'm using a registered 2014 as administrater.  I'll reply to the email, but there is nothing special to send.

Dear progeCAD Customer,

are you able to copy the mentioned text into another text editor? Could you obtain the expected result?

Right now, i could suggest you to restore progeCAD to the Default configuration, following these steps:
1. Close progeCAD 2014 Professional
2. Open the progeCAD installation folder
3. Access the 'center' sub-folder, and run the contained Center.exe application
4. In the appearing dialog, select Help > Toolbar and Menu
5. Continue
6. Select the Default profile, in case this is the active one
7. Check all the proposed options, if you selected the Default profile, ad go on with the process
8. Continue

Please let us know if the reported issue solved, acting the proposed way.
We are looking forward to receiving your notification, please forward it to the support@progecad.com email address. Thank you.

Best regards

When I double-click center.exe, I get the splash with 7 options.  When I click Launch, it goes away and the program doesn't launch.  When I click Help/Video, then the first option, I just get the help file.  I checked Settings, Tools, etc. and don't see where you're going.

I don't understand your instructions at 4 and following.  If I launch as administrator, I don't see Toolbar and Menu under Help.
