Python Console - Can't Paste Code in v6.0.10

Mac OSX Monterey

Application: KiCad, Version: (6.0.10-0), release build

Prior to updating, the Python Console in PCB worked when Pasting Code. Now, I can’t paste any code, I can only Type code

Is it me/my setup/system or, is it a Bug?

EDIT: #2 Interesting… If I open the About Kicad panel and Copy Version To Clipboard, I can paste that copied text into the Console. But, I can’t paste any copied Text from Text Editor or Python IDE…


I don’t know much about Python, and even less of it’s use in KiCad, but I did: PCB Editor / Tools / Scripting Console and copied some random text into it without problems.

Thank you, @paulvdh

Interesting… I’ll re-install v6.0.10 and hope…

Here’s vid showing it (Also, the ending of vid doesn’t show my clicking menubar and turning On the Line Numbers).

It will copy&paste stuff from the console’s namespace but, nothing copied from elsewhere…d

Follow-Up: I re-downloaded Kicad (this time from Git-Hub, previous was from CERN).
After Installing, Pasting Code/Text copied from outside the Console still does Not work, nor does the Line_Numbers visibilitiy… :frowning_face:

I filed a Bug Report…
