Copy Pasting on terminal not working.

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???

I'm having this issue too. really annoying to have to go back and retype everything because one singe line that was copy-pasted in completely ruined the rest of the code...

Even I am having the same issue

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.

@SixBeeps I tried both but it's not working for me. Is this an issue for all free users?

@AdithyaShetty10 This has nothing to do with payment tiers. Have none of the above methods in this post worked for you?

@SixBeeps For me, both ctrl-c and rightclick-copy are not working. It was fine till last week. When I paste some weird string ^[[200~3 gets copied along with my data. I have attached the screenshot below.

@SixBeeps THis is the weird string that gets copied along with data, so the file gets terminated. Do u have any solution for this??

@AdithyaShetty10 I've seen this before, not sure what causes it though. What OS and browser are you using?

Profile icon
AdithyaShetty10

@SixBeeps Windows 10 and Chrome browser

@AdithyaShetty10 have you found any solution? I'm having the same issue

Profile icon

@ErickGomez1 Nope. I am still having this issue. Is there a way to contact the support team about this?? And while running your file is it also creating a temporary file and running make -s. Like I started having this paste issue after this make file(which u can see in the above screenshot) started getting created.

@AdithyaShetty10 no man :( I reported it as a bug a week ago and they notified me that I'd get an update but nothing as of yet.

@rohithrage24 Same here, I even reached out to them on Twitter and reported bug as well, they told me they will look into this...but nothing has been communicated after that
