OneNote copy & paste problem

My OneNote (on my Macbook) keeps becoming unresponsive whenever I try to paste information from another document like Word. It started this morning, and is only on the application itself. (It works fine on the online version, but I prefer to use the actual application.)  It lets me copy and paste info from OneNote, but not from anywhere else. 

I did update it a day or two ago, from the prompt of auto-updates. 

Small problem, but really frustrating. Any help will be appreciated.

The keys are Command + V not Ctrl +V. Moreover ,our related team is working on it. We'll post back if there are any updates.

As this thread is attracting a lot of spam, we will lock this thread. We will still post back if there is an update.
