Web clipboard to be removed from Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides on September 13th, 2017

The web clipboard in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides was originally developed to improve the copy and paste experience in browsers with fidelity issues. As these issues have become less prevalent across many browsers, we’re looking to simplify the user experience by removing the web clipboard, which is rarely used, on September 13th, 2017. We’re also planning enhancements to the traditional copy and paste functionality in Docs, Sheets, and Slides, so stay tuned for more info.
