Copy Paste Not Working in Adobe Illustrator

I’m having huge issues with copy-pasting while using Adobe Illustrator v25 CC on my ShadowPC. It seems like the keyboard shortcut “CTRL+C” is not registering on my ShadowPC half the time. I press the shortcut and then there is nothing on the clipboard. Does anyone have this issue or know a solution to troublesome keyboard shortcuts while using Illustrator on ShadowPC?

I was just trying to copy simple shapes, like small rectangles. Yup, connection is stable and consistent.

What are you trying to copy paste? That latency and its consistency may partially be at fault. But I have 165 ms ping to Shadow and my copy paste works fine for images and text, is your connection stable and consistent?
