Clipboard History not working in Word for Mac 2016

I just purchased Office for Mac 2016, and was editing a Word document when I discovered that the clipboard history isn't working. Regardless of which entry I pick from the history, I always get the last entry cut from the clipboard.

I tested this in a blank Word document, in case there was something funny happening and confirmed. And then I went over to TextEdit, and the clipboard history worked as expected. I also tested in Excel and PowerPoint - these applications respond correctly to the Clipboard history.

Anyone else seeing this? Is there any way to correct it?

I found that by turning OFF "Use Smart Cut and Paste" in Preferences > Edit, the LaunchBar clipboard works as expected.

Nice! That seems to have solved it.
