Can't paste the text to the figjam active text layer from the figma text layer

1. Describe the bug/issue you’re running into?
Copied text from figma text layer can’t be pasted to the figjam active text layer that already has been edited. But It works when nothing is selected in figjam and you just pasting the text into the canvas, so the new text layer created automatically

2. Are you able to consistently reproduce it? If so what are the steps?

  1. Click to edit the text layer in the figma
  2. Select the contents and press Cmd+C
  3. Navigate to the figjam file
  4. Create text layer in figjam
  5. Enter something in the recently created text layer and leave it focused
  6. Press Cmd+V
  7. Nothing happens

3. Share a screenshot, recording, console log, link to the file, etc.

4. Is the issue only happening in desktop app or a specific browser , or both?
Tried only in desktop app

5. What OS/version and/or browser/version are you using?
macOS Big Sur 11.2.3 (20D91)
Figma Desktop App version 97.7

Not sure if this is expected behavior or not, but will log with the team. Thanks for reporting @Nikita_Korotkevych :slight_smile:
