    You haven't given us much to go on..... Are you using a clipboard manager program?

    No. I am not using anything but the apple (OSX 10.8.5) cut and paste function.

    Note, the copy function will now work with (control+C) BUT ONLY WITHIN THE MSOFFICE APPLICATION.

    In other applications the "traditional" (COMMAND+C) continues to function as it always has. How/why it has changed from (command+C) to (control+C) I do not know, but that is the operative short cut now!

    Open Microsoft Word 2011 to a blank document. Select "Tools" from the top menu and then select "Customize Keyboard". Select "reset all" and save that to your normal.dotm template. That should remove any keyboard shortcuts in Word that may have accidentally been set. If that doesn't work, you may have to delete "normal.dotm" and let Word create another.
