This might not have a good solution… When I copy and paste from the ebook from kindle on Mac it pastes a lot of formatting with the code portions. Is there anything that can be done on my part or on the formatting of the ebook to prevent this. I could use the pdf, but I have found the syncing done by kindle across devices to be very convenient. Thanks!

This is something I’ve experienced myself with ebooks in general.

I’m afraid I don’t have a good answer for you on this. I’ll speak to my editor and see if she can find out, but I suspect this is just a limitation of the formats or the tooling used to produce the ebooks.

Hey Daniel, so the recommended approach is to download the source code - that should totally get round having to copy-and-paste directly from the book. Does that help?

That totally works. I wasn’t even aware of the source code being available. Thanks for looking into my request. I think the beta book approach is awesome! Hopefully my inquiries help and don’t just waste your time. Thanks so much for your time and efforts!
