Copy and Paste Issue

When I connect to the Atlas cluster for the first time using copy / paste it works fine, but after that when is already connected the copy / paste functionality doesn’t work anymore. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Can you give me more information on what error you’re seeing? I can open multiple connections using the same connection string with no errors (Debian 8). If you can give me some more information – including what OS and version you’re using – I’ll try to help. Good luck.

In which tool or use-case is this? Where are you copy/pasting from and into?

For example I want to copy this “var pipeline = [ { $match: { … } } ]” from the course website and paste it to the command prompt I use to run mongo shell, the cmd is the one that comes with Windows 10 pro. So I right click on it and the paste option is grayed out.

Right, that’s a Windows issue then and not something we can help you with here.

Instead of using the cmd.exe, I would suggest using PowerShell. It’s a fair bit newer though it has the same copy/paste methods.

Thank you! PowerShell is able to paste it with a right click on it, I’ll use this instead.
