When you highlight the text, and move into the terminal area, is the text still highlighted? I was reading that maybe shift-insert only copies from the “selected clipboard” not the “copy clipboard”, so just wanted you to see if you can try again and check that the text is still highlighted as you are clicking shift-insert
I clicked the ‘locket’ icon on the top left of the browser and allowed Clipboard from there through similar steps.
Nevertheless, I went through it using the steps you mentioned and www.freecodecamp.org is listed in the allowed websites already.
I am unable to use the mouse to paste, as soon as I try to right click in the the terminal the “Unable to copy from clipboard” message appears. I’m not even offered the possibility to paste.
I didn’t pay attention to it specifically so I just tried again
I can confirm that
text remains highlighted when copying both from txt file and from the exercise instruction box yet when pasting I get the same errors (either ~ or pop up message)
selection instantly disappears if I try to right click copy a line from the terminal
so I can only copy using ctrl+c
if I paste it in my txt file it works
if I do ctrl+c in the terminal the text remains highlited and the pop up error appears while shift+insert again gives ~
I experienced the same problem. The post here that solved my problem was the one of jakub-baran.
Open the Codeally website (CodeAlly) and simply click run code on the right for the specific project you are working on. I was able to use the clipboard now, working with the Codeally URL in Chrome.
And I really need to use it, as the backslash command is not working on non-English keyboards either in PSQL on my Mac nor in the remote environment. So I need to copy the backslash all the time. It’s really annoying but there seems to be no solution other than buying a English-layouted keyboard or changing layout.
Hey Guys! If you are using Chrome on a laptop having Windows/Linux, get tilda ‘~’ on pressing the ‘shift + insert’ buttons then you can try this. Just use Fn ‘Function’ key - if your insert key on the keyboard has different functions like on a single press it’s a delete and with the ‘Fn’ key it inserts - on your keyboard with the combination. It would work like a charm. Thanks, Gaurav
