VisualEditor: undefined error during copy
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I selected all VE content from: "It is important to make", up to "Mediawiki-l mailinglist thread "mysql5 binary schema" 25.03.2009"

I could pinpoint it to trying to copying the Header "scripts" and the warning template that follows it.

[Error] TypeError: 'undefined' is not an object (evaluating 'delete children[i].values[attribute]')

On Safari 7 btw:

I have a slight suspicion thrown Undefined errors like these during copy might also be responsible for the broken internal links that are pasted: Manual:Restoring a wiki from backup

Can't reproduce any more. We did a lot of changes to Select-All in the intervening period, which probably fixed it.
