CTRL + C not working with Word 2013

I am running Office 2013 on Win 7 (via bootcamp on a 2-yr-old MacBook Pro) and I can't copy with CTRL + C nor paste with CTRL + V in Word. It works fine in Excel and PowerPoint (haven't used any others, so I don't know). For over 20 years I've used CTRL + C/V and now I have to right click to copy/paste. Is there a way to make CTRL + C/V the shortcut for copy/paste?

Answer

In the Customize Keyboard dialog box, verify that Ctrl+C is assigned to EditCopy and that Ctrl+V is assigned to EditPaste. (To display the dialog box, click File tab | Options | Customize Ribbon | Customize.)
