Script block copy button?

i can see and press the copy button for the examples where is the paste button and where do you paste what you have copied???

Welcome to the community, @Andrew_Gold!

You paste it immediately above the examples, in the code area that starts off with this default code:

output.markdown('# Hello, world!');
let name = await input.textAsync('What is your name?');
output.text('Welcome to the scripting block, ${name}.\');

Just erase that default code, and paste your new code there.

Hope this helps! If this answers your question, could you please mark this comment as the solution to your question? This will help other people who have a similar question. If not, please let me know what else you need help with! :slight_smile:

thanks for the speedy response, there is no paste button that i can see and nothing appears when i do a right click so i am still stuck, i managed to clear the text in the upper box and there is just the number 1 showing in it now, i must be doing something wrong still

I have no idea why they have a copy button but not a paste button, but you would just need to press command-V (or control-V) on your keyboard to paste. (Just like you would normally copy & paste in any other application.)

Right-clicking and choosing “paste” should also work, but I can’t get that to work, so that’s probably a bug in Airtable. It lets me see the word “paste”, but it doesn’t do anything.

So just use command-V (or control-V) for now.

Sorry scott ctrl v does nothing to, if i had my ZX 81 i would have nailed this easy

Hmm, not sure. It’s working for me! Although I’m on a Mac and I’m using command-V. I’m assuming that you’re first clicking into the line where you want the code to be pasted? Like, you can already see the cursor blinking before you try to paste?

Oh, thank you! I actually meant for you to click on the “Solution” checkbox instead of the “thumbs up”. :slight_smile:

Regarding your other question, I’m not sure about that — you may want to post your question in this thread, which seems to be actively monitored by Airtable employees.
