JavaScript won't preview in my workspace

We're talking very simple stuff, such as running an alert or asking for a variable.

Something to do with my laptop? Popup blockers?

NOTE: this is an Acer Chromebook with a lot of annoying "features" so I'm wondering if there's something in the default settings preventing Workspace from operating correctly.

If you're new to workspaces, something that many folks overlook is that it takes two steps to see the results of anything you change:

  1. you must save your editor changes using either the menu or the control-S shortcut
  2. then you need to refresh your browser to see the changes

If that's not it, you could try making a "snapshot" of your workspace and post the link to it here so we can try to replicate the issue.

You win the prize. Exactly it.

Couldn't be something so simple could it? LOL

Must be this horrible computer!

The simple issues can often be the most frustrating. :wink:

Happy coding!
