Is copy/past option available or this is bug that prohibited copy and past?


When Ive tried to copy and pass on Cloud9 my formatting all mix up no matter what I did.
I’ve tried to use unformatted test, make more space between items before I past them, but
the formatting is completely mix up(part on example below)

* miscellaneous */ .debug_dump  -//
//should be two different lines but below is just one line.....

Please help me correctly copy and past or inform me that this option is not available on Cloud 9 or this kind of sort of bug that need to be fixed.

/* miscellaneous */ .debug_dump {
  clear: both;
  float: left;
  width: 100%;
  margin-top: 45px;
  @include box_sizing;
/* universal */ body {
  padding-top: 60px;


Hi, could you tell us more about the issue.

  • on which workspace did this happen?
  • are you copying the text from code editor, from terminal, from another application?
  • do you paste it to code editor?
  • do you copy paste with keyboard or context menu?
  • which browser operating system did you use?


my workspace is ~tatyana_pol:~/workspace/sample_app (sign-up)-branch
I am copied from :

Listing 7.5, listing 7.11 and so on I’ve tried to follow instruction and got
complete app/assets/stylesheets/custom.css.scss
I passed directly to the terminal but it is mix up. I’ve tried paste directly, use cmd V, make
more space - still errors pasting…
I am on Mac. Using Safary.
What should I do to get clean custom.css.scss file without copy/past errors?


this looks like a bug in nano editor, to edit files it’s better to use cloud9 builtin editor instead of nano


where builtin editor is located? Could I use it?


Please disregard the previous message: I figured it out.
So far no problem using c9 editor.


Hi. Whenever I copy something from the terminal or text editor, whatever I paste ends up as tofu (the rectangle that appears in place of unsupported characters). Is there a way to work around this? I’m using Google Chrome. I don’t know if I’m using the nano editor or not, but that still would prevent me from copying things from the terminal, I’m guessing.

I added some CSS to my stylesheet to make sure that comments are italicized, but I doubt that it’s the root of the issue.


Try in incognito mode, or disable all extensions.
Some chrome extensions (e.g. are known to break clipboard on cloud9


Oh, that’s probably it. Thank you!
