I have a Mac, and the keyboard shortcuts don't work for me in Workspaces. The only thing I've found that works is the right click button on my mouse (then I select copy or paste from the menu that pops up). Hope that helps.

Copy pasting in workspaces is kinda tricky. As far as I can tell, the only way to do it in a file is with keyboard shortcuts, or in the browser edit menu, rather than the workspace edit menu.

On a Mac

Function Shortcut
Copy command + c
Paste command + v

 

On a PC

Function Shortcut
Copy Ctrl + c
Paste Ctrl + v

 

Hope that solves it for you. If not, I would reach out to support@teamtreehouse.com.

Happy coding!

Cheers :beers:

Greg, Ctrl + c does indeed copy the selection to the clipboard, and causes a KeyboardInterrupt in the console... And Ctrl + v doesnt appear to do anything :(
