I'm here because a code test that I'm completing has chosen your platform.

I can't copy code out of a repl, I get some of the comments and then some elipses. Is this normal or broken?

By copying, do you mean copying the code? If so, you can just do Ctrl + c or Ctrl + a. Then you can go to the other place and do Ctrl + v.

You can also export the entire repl as a zip file, and move it somewhere else.

If this answers your question, please check the checkmark on the left side of this message. Thanks and Good Luck!

I was using CTRL+A to select all, CTRL+C to copy, and then CTRL+V to paste into Notepad or Notepad++. Same results with either.

I also tried right clicking, and selecting copy, and when I pasted, I got the same thing.

Example repl: https://CodePlatoonQuestions1-7.thedanwhaley.repl.run

Example paste:

// FYI this and all the other IDE-less IDEs I've dealth with are terrible for a variety of reasons.

// Question 1
// This is in Java
…class Main {
public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.println("Hello world!");
}
}
