Can't paste icons in Finder


Do not read this sign.
I can't paste custom icons using the Finder's Get Info panel. This includes pasting a generic graphic on the clipboard as well as copying and pasting an icon from another file's icon.

Can anyone else report if they have or do not have this problem?

I have 10.0.3.



I too have read that supposedly it is as easy as it was in 9.1 to chnge icons but its becoming a real pain. I D&D both into the Inspector, and through the Clipboard but still no go.

The nearest thing I've had to the problem that you've described was icons not taking their new form until after re-logging in.


No, you shouldn't have to log out and log back in... I just tried it and it works fine. Although changing the hard disk icons is something else altogether--I haven't had any luck in that department. Anybody else?
