Same problem here, writing alias pd=“pwd” in ~/.bash-profile is ignored by the exercise.

Problem still there, I am stuck at this exercise even though I typed in the correct commands. Would be nice if someone can solve it quick, as I need it done. Today, if possible.

Okay, found the solution myself just now: simply open a new file with the add button ("+") and type the same commands again.

Greetings to everyone. Im putting the commands for step number two but the system is not processing it. Im typing alias pd=“pwd” and following the steps from the hint but the system is not responding to the commands. Im having hiccups with this and it is not allowing me to move on and finish the lesson. The URL is : FAQ: Environment - Aliases I. Thank you bye.
