This may be an emulator problem; what emulator do you use?

Normally you see this if you have put the terminal into DOC mode

Entry assist feature in 3270 display session

The Entry Assist (DOC mode) features enable easier editing of text documents. The Entry Assist features are available only for 3270 display sessions.

Enabling DOC mode

Enabling DOC mode The Entry Assist features can be enabled by adding the keyword Docmode=Y to the .WS session profile. Set Docmode=N to disable Entry Assist.

When Entry Assist is enabled, the DOC indicator is displayed in positions 67, 68, and 69 of the Operator Information Area (OIA). Also, all the pasting functions on the Paste tab are ignored (see Pasting in DOC mode).

You can assign the mode toggle to a keyboard key or button in the Popup Keypad. The default key assignment for DOC mode is Alt+F1.

Basically if you look at the Bottom of your screen on the Right Hand side if you see the word DOC followed by an arrow pointing down your screen is in DOC mode and this causes strange results when you PASTE things.
To get out of DOC mode enter ALT+F1 and all should be ok.

If your emulator supports Entry Assist/DOC mode, have a look at it. It was always fund, with word-hops, wraps, deletes, etc. By no means all emulators support it. It used to be a hardware-dependent thing (correct model of terminal controller) but I guess if supported, it will be software now.

However, a workaround for your problem is to use Text Entry mode in the editor when you want to paste. Go down to where you want the paste to arrive and type TE in the line-number area and press Enter. Then paste into the blank area that opens up, and press enter. You may need to do some minor adjustments afterwards.
