  • Hi,

    Based on your description, this problem only appear in Windows 10.

    First I suggest you try to disable Preview Pane in File Explorer, sometime this might be the reason of Word crash.

    You can Open File Explorer- click View tab on the top- Panes- Click Preview Pane to enable or disable it.

    Then you can try to repair Office in Windows 10:


    Any updates please let me know and I'm glad to help you.

  • Hi Emi Zhang,

    Thanks for your reply, i have already disable Preview Pane in windows 10. and i have also done several repairs of office 2016 and even tried with a fresh machine with windows 10 and Office 2016.

    I do not get the issue if i open a document from sharepoint and copy some text and paste it into a local notepad and copy the text from the notepad into another sharepoint document.

    Only when i copy from a sharepoint to a sharepoint document.
