Copying code off codecademy


#1



https://www.codecademy.com/en/courses/python-beginner-en-4XuFm/1/4

I have tried getting my code off in every possible way I can think of. I am using Safari, I downloaded Chrome but that didn't work either. Control C/V does nothing.
Please help. :frowning:

Code in the editor is raw text, as far as I know. Which lesson are trying to copy?


#3

The battleship one, lesson 13.
I thought it was raw text too originally.


#4

I can select and copy text, so not able to reproduce the reported issue. Can you click in the editor area and see the cursor?


#5

Yes, I can click in the editor area and see the cursor. I can type, but I can't copy/cut text inside and paste it elsewhere in the same editor or in another text editor.


#6

What if you plot the cursor then Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C? That should copy the entire page to the clipboard which you should then be able to paste into your own text editor.


#7

It's not copying the code. It selects all of it, but doesn't paste anything.


#8

After you select all, can you right click and copy from the context menu?


#9

Yes, it shows up in the context menu and when I right click to paste that's available also


#10

That is strange. I'm having not trouble copying and pasting in that lesson (or any other). Can you copy from the lesson text?


#11

I can copy/paste everything outside of the editor.


#12

I can also copy/paste from the console (where the output is displayed)


#13

Try a page refresh, or go to another page and navigate back to this one. I'm fresh out of ideas.
