Cannot copy CL code in Safari (causes a beep)

Something’s not working the way it seems like it should.

When I use cmd-C or Edit->Copy in Safari while trying to copy CL code, I get a double-beep sound and the copy fails.

This could very easily be a Safari issue since:

  1. I have not had the problem in Chrome.
  2. I checked the Javascript console and no errors are appearing when the copy attempt is made.

This has happened on multiple occasions (occasionally when trying to copy from a slide in Student View when in teacher mode).

I have relaunched Safari but that did not fix the issue.

Here’s the link to the page, dashboard, or activity: Desmos Classroom Activities (it’s private so not sure Desmos Support can view it).


Andrew, using
Safari 16.5
macOS Ventura 13.4
Mac Pro 2019


Copy is still not working on Safari 17.1 running macOS Sonoma 14.1.1,

However I did find a work-around: Cut works so I just Cut/Paste and then Paste again where I need it.
