Can't paste rules on my laptop

Postby gameoflifemaniac » October 10th, 2017, 9:59 am

I can't paste rules in Golly on my laptop. It works on our coputer but pasting rules on this device gives this:
x = 280, y = 294, rule = B3/S23

That doesn't look like rule text. Most likely you've run into the horrible new Chrome version 60/61 selection problem.

The code block Select All option no longer works in the latest up-to-datest Chrome -- you have to make the selection by hand for Ctrl+C to be recognized. Select All looks as if it works, but after Ctrl+C whatever was previously in the clipboard will still be there.

Workaround is to select the rule text by hand, use Firefox, roll back to Chrome version 59, or cross your fingers and hope that the bug reports that various people have filed will result in an early fix in Chrome version 62+.
