Ex - Copy past yaml content doesn't works well.



I'm using chrome and copy past yaml embed from the pdf doesn't works properly. It is very annoying.

    I find a slight copy/paste quality improvement when opening the PDFs in Adobe Acrobat Reader. There's also a quality improvement when I switch vim into paste mode: https://vim.fandom.com/wiki/Toggle_auto-indenting_for_code_paste

    AFAIK, you should not be doing cutting and pasting from PDFs as it is advised in the instructions) because this is always an error-prone process, as spacing and special characters are often warped. There are "SOLUTIONS" files given with the course which are plain text files you can easily cut and paste from. Please make sure you look at them first to see if what you need is there.

    Most people actually find acroread as particularly crappy in this regard, and there is no longer even a version for Linux systems' I always advise to stay a mile away from it. :wink: Many people have wasted a lot of time with it.

    This is a perpetual issue and the best advice is "don't do it".
