Right-Click + Paste Freezes Rich Text Editor

Revised January 23, 2017

The Issue

Text can be pasted into a text component's Rich Text Editor. Using keyboard shortcuts like Control-v, or Command-v on a Mac, work well, but using the mouse to right-click + paste will freeze the component so that the changes cannot be saved.

Workaround

This is a known bug. 

As a workaround, avoid using the mouse to right-click + paste and instead use the keyboard shortcuts Control-v, or Command-v on a Mac.
