If I am using multiple OpenSCAD windows '2019.05] and I select code, it
is not uncommon for the selected code to vanish, and if I don't notice
it can be gone, it doesn't go into the cut and paste buffer, it just
goes.  A swift CTRL-Z puts it back, then selection and CTRL-C works just
fine.

I'm not keen on the multiple tabbed incarnation in 2021.01 as I like to
see what I last rendered, I should probably use Preview more frequently
TBH.

My workflow doesn't really seem to work so well if I use Geany with the
OpenSCAD plug-in, I can often have six or 8 models open at any one time
so separate windows suits me so I can move them around on a dual 24inch 
screen set-up.

I've not mentioned it before, I just live with it.

I'm not using the older versions as the latest Linux AppImage is around
50x faster for F6. Get it from way way
down the downloads page. Whole new ball game. Sweet stuff.

However Roger, your email was empty, and I am replying to the
attachment, how did you manage that?

Roger.

Cheers, Gene Heskett.

Gene, I mentioned that before, it is an artefact of the Mailing-list.
Due to some email providers being ultra strict with new SPAM security provisions, which don't work nicely with Mailman lists.
It is normal.
