## Weird Copy Bug

Has something gone haywire? Let us know about it!

### Weird Copy Bug

I seem to have problems with Ctrl+C'ing from code boxes now for some reason. This has been going on for the past few days. If I want to paste an RLE I have to use the Select All and manually right-click > Copy to paste it into Golly.
Is anyone else having this problem?
I'm using Chrome 60.0 on Windows 10 with Golly 3.0b2.
EDIT: Specifically, the clipboard does not update when I use Ctrl+C from code boxes.

### Re: Weird Copy Bug

I've been having a similar problem, although it seems to work if I highlight the whole code block by hand, and then copy it, using either Cmd-C or Edit > Copy. Using the "select all" button does not work with either of those methods. I've tested FireFox and Safari and both of them can copy BBCode properly using the "select all" button. None of the topics on the PhPBB forum or anywhere else seem to address this issue. I'm using macOS Sierra 10.12.16 and Chrome 60.0.3112.90.

Hmm, manual selection works for me too.

For the case where it doesn't work, and the case where it does, if you paste the copied text into a text editor, what do you see? In theory there ought to be a difference -- e.g., a leading space before the "x" in the header line...?

In theory there ought to be a difference -- e.g., a leading space before the "x" in the header line...? For the cases where it doesn't work the clipboard just doesn't update, so if I paste into a text editor I get whatever the last thing I successfully copied was. So if I use Select All > right click to copy A and then use Select All > Ctrl-C to copy B pasting into a text editor gives "A". LifeWiki: Like Wikipedia but with more spaceships.

In clipboard: Whatever Select All > Control + C Something Paste: Whatever Select all manually > Control + C Some other thing Paste: Some other thing Haven't tested for Right click > Copy.

### Re: Weird Copy Bug

I restarted my browser (Chrome on Mac OS 10.12) on accident, and now I'm getting this too.
x₁=ηx
V ⃰_η=c²√(Λη)
K=(Λu²)/2
Pₐ=1−1/(∫^∞_t₀(p(t)ˡ⁽ᵗ⁾)dt)

$$x_1=\eta x$$
$$V^*_\eta=c^2\sqrt{\Lambda\eta}$$
$$K=\frac{\Lambda u^2}2$$
$$P_a=1-\frac1{\int^\infty_{t_0}p(t)^{l(t)}dt}$$
