Known Issues with Minecraft: Education Edition

Current Issues (last updated 6/11/2018)

 Minecraft: Education Edition Game Client

Users may experience crashes while typing or backspacing

  • Version Impacted: 1.0.27, Windows 10 and MacOS
  • Workaround: Use the delete key, rather than the backspace key. That will remove the letter in front of the cursor, so you’ll need to put the cursor at the front of the word. Ctrl+A delete also works, so you delete the whole word with one key press, but the word doesn’t highlight, so it’s a bit hard to tell.
