Copy Pasting on terminal not working.
121710309055VAD (1)

I have been trying to debug my python code, I am copypasting the input into the terminal but copy-paste is not working.

It worked fine until last week. Is this any settings change or is it the platform update???

Since the other methods are not working try this:

  • reloading the page (code should be saved though)
  • command + c (to copy)
  • command + v (to paste)

This should work if it doesn't please tell me!!!

@JosephSanthosh command + c gives "^C" and command + v gives "^V"

2 ways to do it

First Method

Right Click, and click Copy:

Second Method

Highlight the text and press Ctrl + Ins

Conclusion

Ctrl + C will terminate the repl.it process, so they had to change how you could copy text.

@Coder100 What browser? And I though C-C was standard...

for example, to make a newline, you have to do: \r\n @CodeLongAndPros

Are you using Ctrl-C or are you right-clicking and copying that way?

@SixBeeps I tried both ctrl+c and rightclick->copy, but it is working in the above terminal prompt, but not working in the notebook page.
