So I've noticed something a little weird going on in the editor and I don't know how to get around it.
It keeps doing this to my text:
This of course is not ideal, I cannot see what my text looks like in the syntax editor, pasting the text in line by line doesn't work either as it just does that but to all the lines individually.
There's a lot of code there and I'd much rather not re-type it by hand as the whole purpose is to search for a mistake I may have made in the code I wrote, writing it again would be pointless as I could make another mistake and then the answers will be irrelevant due to the inaccuracy of my information.
This didn't happen until today but then again I haven't pasted any text into the forums for some time, is this a new feature or a bug?
Either way its impossible for me to use the editor as is and I'm wondering if there is a workaround.
Thanks for your time.
Any help is much appreciated.
does your editor has " paste as plain text"
or other types of paste?
try to make the copy , and paste in into a "notepad" , then re-copy it from the note pad and paste it in your editor .
let us know if that helps.
I'm copying (Ctrl+C) from notepad++ but I tried to paste it into simple notepad then copy and paste into the editor but that didn't work either.
I am unsure what you mean by "Paste as plain text" as I'm pasting (Ctrl+V) straight into the forum's editor
I believe it may be something to do with the indenting of the code.
instead of ctrl + v,
right click and see if it has another paste
" paste as plain text " or paste without formatting
Okay right I understand now,
Using chrome's Paste as Plain Text (Ctrl+Shift+V) has yielded the same result as a simple Paste (Ctrl+V).
