Hi everyone, I have a situation and I am not sure what I should be focusing on first. There are a few levels where the problem may be coming from.

I use Airtable in Chrome. As I move from cell to cell and view to view, I am often pressing a button on my Stream Deck that pastes small amounts of text for me. However, recently if I have expanded a long-text Airtable cell (so the whole cell pops up for easier reading), if I hit the button on my stream deck it closes the cell and does not paste it. This is not an issue, however, if I double-click within the cell and work on it without expanding it to the larger view. This is also not an issue with general copying/pasting with a keyboard. 

This issue comes and goes. I am trying to figure out where I should *start* with all this. Where do you think?

- Chrome

- Airtable

- Stream Deck hardware

- The app within Stream deck that "pastes"

Hopefully the question makes sense. If you have any ideas on what could be happening I'd totally appreciate them.

Hmm, I'd investigate the app within the Stream Deck that's pasting I think

I assume it's a macro of some kind that's chaining some keyboard presses for you?  If so, what commands is it sending?
