Why does the Challenge section operate differently to the Workspace?

When I type where the cursor actually is, what I've typed pops up many spaces before where my cursor actually is. This is making simple challenges a nightmare.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <nav>

Have you tried:

  • restarting your browser?
  • checking for browser updates?
  • using a different browser?
  • restarting your PC?
  • try a different PC?

I know these are very basic obvious solutions, but sometimes when you are frustrated forget to try them!

Challenges do act a little differently than workspaces, but usually work just fine for me.

Thanks Jamison, yeah you're probably right. I am using my mums old computer at the moment. Cheers
