I’ve just created my first notebook yesterday. I made a few edits this morning and then for some reason it just stopped working. When I try to evaluate a cell by using shift-enter, or by clicking the play icon for the cell, nothing happens. Even a markdown cell won’t evaluate.
I’ve tried creating a new notebook, but nothing evaluates at all.
Is there a setting somewhere that controls global options for a user? What could I have missed?
I loaded the notebook, and at first nothing loaded. After about 30 seconds while I poked around, things started to evaluate. There isn’t a global user level option for this. There is safe mode, but you aren’t using it.
I think that something in that notebook is loading a lot of data, and it might take a while to evaluate, especially on slower connections.
I’ve just deleted everything, including my account, and will create a new account. I have a look at the dev tools and there were some very concerning errors about malware and such. I’ve run a scan on my computer but found nothing.
I’ll let you know what I find when I recreate my account.
I didn’t run anything explicitly, but this is a work computer and the browser is managed by my work.
I’ve tried to create a new account, but I’m running into some trouble because my email address is already listed, but since I have deleted my account I can’t sign in to it either. I might need to wait a while.
Account deletions take 3 days to process. You can speed up that process if you need to by emailing email@example.com.
Managed work computers might be affecting iframes or SSL of subdomains, both of which can affect Observable. Even some ISPs have caused trouble when they meddle too much in the connection. Once you have you account up again, it may be worth while to try a browser you don’t normally use. Firefox instead of Chrome, or Chrome instead of Firefox, for example.
