"Launch Workspace" button does nothing. I've noticed this on a few videos.

When I click on "Launch Workspace" it just takes me to the top of the page. I've noticed this on a few videos, including this one.

Hi Mason Embry

What operating system and browser are you using?

Also, make sure that your browser is at full width when you press the button. It doesn't work for me if it is at the bottom when my page width is small.

It works on my own browser. It opens up a new window when I launch it. Try another browser if possible., maybe something in your browser is interfering with it.

It happens in Chrome for me sometimes. Refreshing the page tends to fix it.

I was using Chrome on Mac OS X Yosemite. The answer is that on smaller page widths the button doesn't work. On full page width, the button does work. I'm sure it's just a minor glitch. Thanks, John, for confirming that bug.

I can confirm this is still an issue. I'm viewing the lesson in Chrome, running Yosemite. Clicking the "open workspaces" button has no effect, regardless of my browsers width. If I right click the button and select "open in new tab" or "open in new window" the browser will open up the entire lesson page in a new tab or window, not the work space. After reloading and doing this a few times, eventually the workspace opens.

Browser width makes no difference. The button has not launched a workspace correct since the beginning of this course. Refreshing the page generally works, but is a pain.
