I'm currently receiving this strange error: When I select a block of code to copy into another document, the pasted result includes 3 lines of code from above my original selection, and it drops 3 lines of code from the end of my original selection. Any suggestions as to what might be causing this?

Sorry, I prefer not to download untrusted files. The best practice in this public forum is to post video on YouTube.  Click the Film strip icon to add video directly to your reply.  When prompted, paste the YouTube URL and click Preview.

 

Copying code in DW works for me.  I can't reproduce your problem with DW 20.1, build 15211, latest Win10 (1903) and error-free code.

Update:

The problem disappeared with a restart (of Dreamweaver, not my PC). I haven’t been able to replicate/recreate the error again. The error has occurred on a couple of occasions in the past and it has been somewhat problematic when I failed to notice that the exact code I intended to copy had not copied correctly.

 

The problem is unique to Dreamweaver - Testing the copy in another application at the time did not produce an error.

 

I am satisfied that restarting Dreamweaver will set everything right again – I will just be more vigilant in the future in ensuring that the desired copy area has been pasted as intended.
