When i go to edit my code it is deleting what i had there previously very annoying what can i do to combat this?thanks

<ul> <li><ame</li>

Very late response and you've probably fixed this by now. I had a similar issue and i think that you might have toggled you "ins" key on your keyboard. There is 2 settings, one is what you are used to and the other deletes the next digit/letter as you type. If you just press it again it should go back to normal,

could you please show your code that you're having this issue with?

I will then be able to determine if it is a TreeHouse workspace bug or an error in your code

Thanks

He might describe a bug I had once. I could not correctly delete any code. There was some bits of code stuck right behind the cursor and whenever I tried to delete something the workspace deleted code a few spaces apart from the cursor while still having some code stuck behind it.

Couldn't fix it and had to move on to the next lesson and a new workspace.

I don't think it's either though. Say I have a line of code like <ul><li><name> if I where to go in front of name an start typing it will delete the characters as I type New ones. Hard to explain but I tried lol

<name> is not part of the HTML DOM

Without seeing your workspace and your browsers it's quite hard to figure out, however, there are a few things you can check:

If you pass all of the above can you let me know and I will raise as a potential bug with the workspace

Thank you
