Can't copy/paste code challenge description text

Although the challenge description tells me to copy/paste, I cannot select any of the code. Simply nothing happens when I click in the text and hold down the mouse button and move around. Nothing is highlighted. Same for previous challenges as well.

Running Safari 8.0.4 on OS X 10.10.2

If you're trying to right click it won't work. You have to use the keyboard...

Ctrl C to copy Ctrl V to paste

Hopefully that helps the problem you're having. :)

Thanks for the answer! I'm sorry if my description was unclear. The problem is not with the "copy" action, but rather getting the text selected (highlighted). :)

Oh dang. Well it was worth a shot. Lol. I've been using Mozilla Firefox and haven't had any problems, so maybe try using a different web browser? I hope you figure out the problem! :D Sorry I couldn't help.

Hehe would probably work. Thanks anyway!

If you make sure you have scrolled right to the top of the screen, the mouse drag should work. If you've compressed the text at all by scrolling down slightly, the text can't be selected.

Hope you get it sorted!

I remember it driving me mad when I was trying to figure it out. It is to do with the way the text is frozen at the top of the screen. If it's locked in place, it isn't selectable; else it is fine.

Weird, but true!

Glad you're sorted.

Steve.

Yeah, unfortunately not so intuitive for some it seems. Thanks for sharing!
