I cannot copy and paste in Word after upgrading to Windows 8

I cannot copy and paste in Word after upgrading to Windows 8. I can still do that in Outlook. I really hope that Windows 8 would succeed. This is too big a flaw to observe in the Release Preview. Please fix this and release an update. Thanks!
