Can't select API key


#1

Is it just me or did something change that no longer allows us to select our API key? In other words, I can’t drag over the key so I can copy it and use it with other applications. Almost all other text on the page is selectable except for the key.


#2

It works fine for me so it must be an issue with your browser I guess. Are you using Chrome/FF?


#3

I had the same problem while using Firefox. Switching over to Chrome fixed it.

Try double-clicking the text.

For Firefox:
Right click -> open source code -> ctrl +f and search for “API key”, then you can normally copy it
Or double click it so its selected and then drag it to your search bar or in a notepad window, then copy it from there

I didn’t look into why it is so complicated to copy it but it’s possible.
Edit: probably because of some disabled=“disabled” attribute, which is actually meant to make the form element unusable, so Firefox does imho the right thing.

I double-click and then copy. I’ve always had to do this.


#7

Double click works for me on Firefox as well


#8

Some browsers seem to disable text selection inside <input disabled> tags for some reason. This is especially annoying in places like mobile Safari. You can work around this by going to the API page instead, and scrolling down a bit to find your key inline. There’s a persistent link to that page in the footer.

It’s not a bug, it’s a feature. Not sure why they disabled it though.
