Can't copy/paste keyframes

    I could swear that this was working as recently as a week or two ago, but I am unable to copy/paste keyframes in the Animation window. I've tried clicking individual keyframes (so they turn blue), pressing ctrl-C, then moving somewhere else in the timeline and pressing ctrl-V. I've made sure the scrubber was on a position with a keyframe under it. I've tried using "Copy" from the edit menu, I've tried Duplicating, and nothing seems to work. Did I just imagine that this was a feature?

    This is getting bizarre. Yesterday copy/paste was working for me again: just highlight a keyframe (blue), ctrl-c, move to another position in the timeline, and ctrl-v to paste. Now today it's not working again. Does anyone else experience this? Is there some subtle condition I'm not aware of that prevents copy/paste from working?

    Sounds like a bug report would give a definitive answer here.

    or is that some read-only animation issue? (imported animation, vs. copied version of it, or one animated in unity)

    I'll report a bug. I was just hoping I was doing something wrong that someone would identify as a reason for the inconsistent behavior. It's currently letting me copy/paste again. This is the same animation I've been working on throughout, and I can otherwise edit the animation. It's just that copy/paste sometimes isn't working.

    This happens to me regularly, don't know why. Closing and reopening the animation window fixes it.
