Cannot copy paste objects ("something went wrong")



When I start out with an empty file I can copy-paste just fine. But at some point I get this error message:
"Something went wrong

An error occured when rendering the report"
From that point on I can't copy-paste anything anymore. No visuals, no buttons, no textboxes, nothing. Always getting the same error. I tried it on different machines as well, same issue. I have not found any similar reports of this problem, which is why I'm writing here.
Thanks in advance.

Feedback Type:
