copy not working in Rstudio

I have a problem with the editor in Rstudio: when I show a script in a new window (to allow me to edit script in one window on one monitor and look at console in another window on a second monitor) then copy and paste frequently fails. If I right click the copy option is greyed out, similarly CTRL+c doesnt copy what is currently highlighted to the clipboard (ctrl+v will paste whatever was left in clipboard from copying in a different application). This doesn't happen every time, but I'd say about 80% of the time.
Rstudio: v 1.3.1093
R: v 4.0.3
OS: win 10 Enterprise v 1709
I'd be very grateful for any solutions
