NX10 Cut and Paste Text

I am trying to cut and paste notes (simple text) from one drawing to another drawing (in a different file) and I get the below Alert, which is preventing me from doing what I need to do.
This is something that I have done before, with no issues. It should be a very simple thing to do.
I am using NX10 with Teamcenter, so maybe that is an issue here.
Has anybody else seen this error when cutting pasting text?

RE: NX10 Cut and Paste Text

Have you tried right clicking on the drawing, view, then go to boundary and change this from manual to automatic, or make it super large, then resize it? You may have to make your sheet size super large also. Just some thoughts.

Problem Solved
As mentioned this task is typically very easy, but in my situation I was trying to take notes from a millimeter based drawing into an inch based drawing, so naturally that caused scaling problems.

It can also happen going from say an E size to an A size. In this case, I would drag the text near the drawing origin in the bottom left corner before copying.
