"Copy link" does not work in Safari 12.1

+2
−0

I am using Safari Version 12.1 (14607.1.40.1.4).

Whenever I want to copy a link using the "Copy Link" button, it does not work and throws this error in the console:

TypeError: undefined is not an object (evaluating 'navigator.clipboard.writeText')

Further info here:

Error in console

It works well to me in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Thanks for the report -- will investigate. Monica Cellio‭ 6 months ago

Declined per mattbrent's answer. Safari 12 is unsupported; if it's easy we could've done it anyway, but I've had a look and it's not. ArtOfCode‭ 3 months ago

@ArtOfCode OK. Now I no longer use that version, and this works well in Safari 14. In any case, Safari 12 is not so old, it was shipped on March, 2019. fedorqui‭ 3 months ago

That's... pretty old, in browser terms. We support the current and previous major versions of each major browser, so Safari support is 13 and 14. ArtOfCode‭ 3 months ago

I'm testing on Safari Version 14.0 (15610.1.28.1.9, 15610)

This no longer seems to be an issue. I believe this is a browser version we don't support (I could be wrong though)

https://github.com/codidact/qpixel/issues/389 for reference. We can probably close this.

It still happens in Safari 12.1.1. Whether that's a browser we support, I don't know -- just commenting to indicate that you're not seeing it working because we fixed a bug. Monica Cellio‭ 3 months ago
