When you run a query and attempt to edit a field within the results, the paste keyboard shortcut no longer works as expected.  If you click into a field to change the value and hit the command-v to paste the value from your clipboard, it fails and says `Cannot Paste Row: Number of fields in pasted data doesn't match the columns in the table (1 vs 5).
Data must be in the same format used by the Copy Row Content command.`

I am not trying to paste a row, just one single value.  The only workaround I have found is to paste from the context menu.  Which is much slower more difficult. 

How to repeat:
1) Run a query against a test database.
2) Click into a field to edit the value.
3) Use the command-v shortcut

Suggested fix:
Restore the paste functionality

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 8.0.16 release, and here's the changelog entry:

The Command+V keyboard shortcut on macOS returned an error indicating that
a paste-row operation was attempted, rather than the single-value paste
used to edit a field within the result grid following a successful query.

Thank you for the bug report.
