Paste text into console view on iOS

Feature suggestion: enable pasting text into the console on iOS.
I have a program that requires user to input a web link when it is being run. I would love to run the program on the Replit iOS app, but can’t do so because it’s not practical to type in the web link (which is long and has many random characters). It would be super helpful to be able to copy the link and paste into console on iOS.
Here is a simple example of a program requesting a url, which I can’t paste in the console tab of the iOS app: https://replit.com/@voxivox/Enter-url-example

Hi @voxivox , welcome to the forums!
Can you try long-pressing on the Console to try pasting? Or a double-tap?

Thanks for getting back on this @NateDhaliwal. I did try both long press and double-tap and don’t get the typical iOS pop-up with an option to paste.

Also when you do get a paste, sometimes in languages like python and index-based languages when an index indicates it’s apart of a loop/function. I doesn’t index things properly.

Here is an example program in case you use the replit iOS app and want to test out: https://replit.com/@voxivox/Enter-url-example

Unfortunately, I use an Android phone.
If the user were to tap once in the Console, would the keyboard appear?

Keyboard appears on iOS as well, but option to paste text copied from elsewhere does not appear.
