I have the same issue when copying from MS Office 2016 Word or Excel and pasting into Gmail in Chrome, Wordpress, terminal or other applications. I can paste into LibreOffice Writer and Files. Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V or Ctrl+Shift+V do not appear to make any difference.
I'm having the same issue. The major applications I use are Scrivener 3 Aeon Timeline 3.0. Both worked without any issue in Crossover 21 on Fedora 36 (with the minor tweak of the speech SAPI in Scrivener). I had to uninstall v21 to get v22 to install. Afterward, cut and paste would no longer work seamlessly between the two applications or between them and LibreOffice. I had to use a text editor to make it work (xed, in my case).
I ended up uninstalling v22 due to terrible performance issues (it made Aeon Timeline almost unusable) and reinstalling v21. Unfortunately, whatever changes v22 makes to the bottles were not undone after the reinstall and copy/paste still did not work. Only after I restored my previous bottles did copy & paste return to working order.

I've got the same issue with copying/pasting the font type in Word, Excel and Powerpoint (2010) in Crossover 23 running on Ubuntu 23.04 (both Wayland and X11 sessions).
It turns out that the semi-visible popup toolbar that shows when you select text with the mouse apparently gets focus (the font textbox) when one presses the Ctrl-key.
Steps to reproduce:
Mark a section of text in Word, Excel or Powerpoint with the mouse (e.g., double-click a word)
Observe the popup toolbar being shown
Attempt to copy the marked text by pressing Ctrl-C
Observe when the Ctrl-key is pressed, the text in the toolbar's font-box gets focus
When Ctrl-C now is pressed, the font name is copied
The same issue happens when one is to replace marked text with something on the clipboard (the text is pasted in the font textbox instead of replacing the selected text).
Alt 1: click the copy or paste button in the top toolbar
Alt 2: when text has been selected with the mouse, move the mouse pointer to that the popup toolbar is closed
Alt 3: select text with shift+arrow keys
I think this issue is new to Crossover 23 as I have not noticed it with any previous version.

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
